Opening of swimming pool

6th September 2018

Cambridge Mayor Nigel Gawthrope returned to his former primary school to open their refurbished swimming pool.

Cllr Gawrthrope was so keen to attend the event at The Grove that he did so outside of his pre-planned schedule.

He said “The kids were astonished to find out that it was my primary school. Many of the children were there for their first day at school and it was extra special for them to meet the Mayor.”

The refurbishment was funded through fundraising and a grant from Sport England.

The pool is also used by the wider community at evenings and weekends. A visit is being planned for the children to attend the Guildhall.
