CHILLY DIP

Work is well underway on the refurbishment of the public open air swimming pool in Helmsley.

Helmsley Open Air Pool, who are a registered charity, own one of only four public Lidos in North Yorkshire. The facility at Helmsley is undergoing it’s first major overhaul in its fifty year history. The pool is heated, however at the beginning and end of each season cold water swims are facilitated. Following a fantastic summer season, fundraising events and the successful securing of grants moneys, the refurbishment of the pool tank, pool surround and perimeter fencing is being carried out. The winter months on top of the North Yorkshire Moors may not be the ideal time to carry out external tiling works but it was imperative that this work was carried out outside the summer season.

A temporary “tent” has been erected over the pool to allow the space to be heated and kept above the constant 5 degrees Celsius required for the rendering and tiling activities. The works are programmed for completion in April to allow the new facility to open in May for the new summer season.

A further phase of works to refurbish, or even renew the changing facilities, is planned for the future. Fundraising is well underway and all donations for this phase gratefully accepted, for further details or to donate please visit:
