As many of you will be aware our diving board has been out of action lately. After speaking to a specialist we have had to make the decision to take it permanently out of action.
The board was given to us second hand around 12 years ago when the old Stanley pool closed and has reached the end of its life. The framework is starting to show signs of fatigue.
We will be trying to replace it, however we will have to replace it with a diving platform rather than a springboard as the pool isn't deep enough for a springboard to be safely installed and used.
We have been quoted around £1700 for a new diving platform. And will be fundraising in order to try and have one by next season. As we are a charity with only 5 years left on our lease we are unable currently to apply for capital funding and use other funding avenues for more pressing needs such as new filters etc.
