Late October 2017
The 2017 AGM was held on Wednesday 18th October at 8pm in The Tanyard Hall, Gomshall.
The following short report will appear in the next edition of the Shere Parish Magazine:
SHERE SWIMMING POOL CLUB 29th ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Held on Wednesday 18th October 2017 8pm at the Tanyard Hall, Gomshall
A good turnout for this meeting with about 40 members present. First the usual business of an AGM, including the welcome election of a new Chairman, David Roe. The Shere Swimming Pool is well over 100 years old. It is probably nearing the end of its life and now needs major work or perhaps even rebuilding. The members heard that much exploratory work has already been done, with a specialist report and input from pool building companies. We are at present awaiting pressure tests. The problems were discussed at some length, with useful input from members. As soon as the way forward becomes clear an EGM will be held. The Pool website www.sherepool.org.uk will be kept updated with ongoing progress.
A more comprehensive report can be found on the AGM page.
The pool has now closed for the season. The Committee would like to extend its thanks to all those volunteers who have helped maintain the pool and the surrounds over the summer. We are actively investigating what can be done to resolve the issues with the leakage of water from the pool. Please come along to the AGM to help us work out the best way forward.
We welcome David Pryor as our new Membership Secretary (contact details on the Committee page).
The following email was sent to the membership on 28 April, if you didn't receive it, it was because we have a number of email addresses recorded incorrectly:
Subject: Shere Swimming Pool Opening
We are also looking for a new Membership Secretary to replace Mary Kelly who is retiring from the role. Familiarity with computers and Excel would be a great asset. Mary has kindly offered to help bring the new recruit up to speed, and other assistance is available. Furthermore, the hardest task of registering the membership for this year has been completed! For more information, please contact Jenny Taylor (01483 202317 or secretary[at]sherepool.org.uk).
We are looking for additional volunteers to assist Louise and others with putting the cover on the pool in the evenings. To assist with this it makes sense if you live fairly close to the pool. For more information, please contact Louise Duncan or Jenny Taylor (secretary[at]sherepool.org.uk).
We are still hoping to open the pool on Sunday 30th April, although there is a lot to do before that and we are reliant upon favourable weather!
