THE swimming pool at Greenfylde First School in Ilminster is set to officially reopen tomorrow after being closed for nearly two years.

The pool committee has worked hard in that time to raise the £19,000 needed to pay for the pool repairs.

Mayor of Ilminster Cllr Carol Goodall will cut the ribbon to officially reopen the pool this weekend.

A Kids’ 50-50 Sale will also take place at Greenfylde on Saturday from 10am to 12noon with items for children aged five-plus such as books, toys, clothes, bikes, equipment and games.

Pool committee vice-chairman Brendan Moran said: “At the opening event we will be holding tours of the pool, taking bookings from the community, offering cream teas and refreshments and holding the 50-50 sale.

“We are looking for sellers to take part in the sale – they will get 50% of the sale of their items with the other 50% going towards the pool.”

Anyone who wants to sell items should contact Brendan on 01460-52627 or e-mail him at
