growing number of parents and staff determined to bring swimming back to Meldreth, has at last brought the day that we feared we may never see again.


There have been two working weekends at school where parents, staff AND children have toiled to clear and restore the site and its structures. A new tarmac surround has been laid and the pool itself restored and relined. Mrs Samways and Mrs Robinson have completed training to manage the chemical cocktail that keeps the water just as it should be. So fingers crossed, we should be ready for our first trail of eager young ducklings to traipse across the playground from Robin class shortly after half term for their first dip in our ‘new’ school pool. And let’s not forget, this is the pool where world class diver Daniel Goodfellow started out!


Needless to say, it is an expensive business running the pool and our Swimming Pool Committee will need to continue fundraising to make sure that all our efforts don't fall flat in the coming years. The swimming pool needs to be self-funding as cuts to school budgets mean that the school will not be able to pay for the running costs. We welcome any contributions large or small, to keep the tradition of swimming at Meldreth alive! Donations may be left with Chris Robinson at the School. Please make cheques payable to Meldreth Primary School PTA.
