After 11 years of dedicated fundraising by Bridport Action Committee for an Indoor Pool (BACit), the swimming pool at Bridport Leisure Centre was finally opened in August 1994. That was nearly 30 years ago, and with this milestone fast approaching the pool is in need of essential maintenance.

Will Thrower the Centre Manager explains: “The pool is in constant use and is now in desperate need of re-grouting, this is a huge undertaking and a specialist task which will cost tens of thousands of pounds. We have decided to ask our valued members and residents of the town to join together to support its local community centre and help to keep the pool open.”

The centre is holding a grand raffle with some fantastic prizes. The first prize being a 12-month Full Access Membership worth £540. Other prizes include 6 and 3 month memberships plus a children’s activity/membership, family swim voucher, PT session, fitness class, adults and childs swim kits, squash racket, yoga mat and many more.

Will adds: “Tickets have been selling well, but we have a long way to go. This is a great opportunity for our existing members, as their payments will be frozen for the duration of their prize. We also appreciate the support we are receiving from non-members and members of the public who simply would like to support our centre.”

Tickets are £1, or 6 for £5, and are available at Bridport Leisure Centre and Bridport Tourist Information office. The raffle will be drawn by the Mayor of Bridport, Cllr Ian Bark on Tuesday 11th October 2022.
