Swimmers have pledged to support the rebuild

On Sunday 30 September the venue was broken into and burned to the ground. The vandals ransacked the facility after cutting holes in the roofs with power tools before setting the buildings on fire.

A gofundme page has been set up to raise money to cover the renovation costs and nearly £2000 has been raised so far. Click here to donate to the fund.
