Friends spruce up pool for hot weather

Oxford Mail: Hinksey outdoor pool Hinksey outdoor pool

IT WILL be swimming trunks weather this weekend, and Abingdon’s outdoor pool is getting a lick of paint to look its best for visitors.

Temperatures were set to sore to 20C today and again tomorrow with a milder 19C forecast for Sunday.

Hinksey heated outdoor pool in Oxford will be open to visitors wanting to cool off.

Abingdon’s outdoor pool doesn’t open for the summer until next Saturday, but this week the Friends of Abbey Meadow Outdoor Pool were making it look spic and span.

Speaking on behalf of the Friends, Peter Harbour said: “We are trying to raise the profile of the pool, and we’re keen to improve its presentation to the public.”

Vale of White Horse District Council provided materials and supervision for volunteers over a two-week period.

Dr Harbour added: “It is a mark of the commitment of Vale Council that this work is able to go ahead and it is a pleasure to see a good number of volunteers coming forward – and more would be welcome.”

Confusing. The headline says Abingdon Pool. The work was by Friends of Abbey Meadow Outdoor Pool in Abingdon. Did the photo editor throw a wobbly?
