People will be dipping into the past as Crewe Pool celebrates its 75th birthday – and to mark the occasion, an action-packed day of celebration is planned.
On Saturday, November 3, swimmers will be charged 1930s prices for admission – meaning adults will pay just 2p and juniors 1p.
There will also be extra family fun sessions planned, as well as taster sessions from Crewe and Nantwich Junior Canoe Club.
Outside of the pool there will be stalls and activities including:
- Behind the scenes tours; and
- Representatives from Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as from the police and fire service.
One of the day’s highlights is sure to ‘Pool in the Pool’. This is the brainchild of artist Megan Clark-Bagnall who has been working with local children during the half-term break to prepare for the event.
It will be an interactive game of pool where swimmers will recreate a game of pool being played in the café area.
Swimmers will act as the balls with the whole exercise broadcast on a series of TV screens that can be viewed on the balcony.
There will be several games during the afternoon between 2pm-4pm meaning different people can watch and participate.
The pool is open from 9am and the Mayor of Cheshire East Councillor George Walton will be there from 10.30am.
Members of the media are free to attend.
