Description

Haltwhistle Swimming pool is a precious jewel for people living and visiting west Northumberland.
However we are a charity outside the umbrella of the local authority and at risk of closure if we do not raise funds to upgrade the machinery that operates the pool. We have three outdoor pools and on a hot summers day we attract people from all over the north east, as there is no better place for an all day swim and a picnic.
For people living in this rural area the pools are the only place they can access to swim and come rain or shine during the summer months local people and schools use us. It is the place where our children learn to swim aswell as unwind after school. Adults enjoy the pools for swimming and aquafit classes
if we do not fund raise there is a chance that the pools may close next year. It is so important for our children to learn to swim and we need our local pool in our rural community.

Haltwhistle Swimming & Leisure Centre

Location: Haltwhistle

We are a small charity leisure centre that is greatly supported by the local community. Our local schools use the centre for both PE & swimming lessons. Staff and volunteers give a lot of their own time raising funds for the centre and organising events for local community to attend and enjoy.
