Flamingo Pool Axminster

The Flamingo Pool, a self-funded charity, was brought to reality by a massive community effort to raise funds following a lottery reversal of decision to fund the project.   Local residents pulled together to ensure that the project became more than just a pipe dream. A steering committee was formed and worked tirelessly to find funding for the 25m pool and the country‚Äôs first 6m2 hydrotherapy pool open to the public.  It has been at the heart of the community ever since.

At the Flamingo Pool, we aim to provide & maintain an eco-friendly public community swimming pool for the benefit of the residents and visitors of Axe Valley by offering the best aquatic activities in a safe & enjoyable environment, a high standard of affordable exercise, fun facilities, teaching programmes, classes & local employment opportunities.  By using solar panels and pool covers, we lower our carbon footprint and save money.

Both pools are disinfected by Ultra-Violet (UV) light so that the level of chlorine in the pools is approximately a third of a normally disinfected pool.  The 6m2 hydrotherapy pool with therapeutic pressure jets is open to the public & used by 3 local hospitals for physiotherapy & remedial use.  We offer pre-work, general, lane, off-peak & adult's swimming, family fun, inflatable parties, parent toddler & aquafit sessions, group & private one to one swimming lessons run to ASA standard, elite & swimming club competitive sessions. Local primary school swimming lessons, RLSS Rookies lifesaving & water survival skills, which can progress to a lifeguard qualification & sports industry career, a sun bed, yoga sessions and training courses.

Anyone can come to the Flamingo Pool.  Under 8s will need to be accompanied by an adult of 18 or over.

We welcome any Donations, volunteers to help us to fundraise and sponsorship
