Pells Pool in Lewes begins countdown to the new season


The Pells Pool in Lewes is gearing up for its 152nd annual season and inviting local people to come and lend a hand at the venue on May 5 and 6.

For its traditional Volunteers’ Weekend there is plenty to be done – weeding, painting and cleaning – to get the pool ready for the first swim on May 18. Pool Manager Phil Ransley will welcome everyone young and old to get to work sprucing-up the venue between 10am and 4pm on both days.

“We pride ourselves on being here for the local community in the summer months, and we know the local community is always here for us too. Plus, we will have cake ...”

The pool has continued to make improvements over the winter. With the official opening on May 25, it promises to be a memorable season.
