About Us

Cutting Cake.jpg

We celebrated by having a coffee morning with lovely cakes donated by our very generous customers during the day and in the evening had a bubbles and cake party with some of the numerous people who have been integral and important to the success of the Flamingo Pool over the past 21 years.


We wish to thank every single one of you who has swam, worked for us, volunteered, donated anything and primarily supported the Flamingo Pool in the past 21 years. We really wouldn’t be here without you.


To say thank you we are giving everyone £2 swims for the whole weekend of Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2019. *excludes lessons. Normal pool rules and T&C’s apply.


Here’s to the next 21 years and beyond!


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’s 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 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
