Story

On the night of 1st March 2018 the combined forces of Storm Emma, the Beast from the East and very high spring tides conspired to wreak havoc on the Devon coast - including Brixham's beloved Shoalstone Pool.

This seawater lido has been at the heart of the community for over ninety years. It has weathered many storms, but rarely one with as much force as this. The sea battered the pool and its surrounds, tearing up concrete, ripping away railings, and destroying the doors to our storerooms - strewing maintenance supplies and equipment across Torbay.

The damage is particularly devastating as the pool is entirely run by and for the community, relying on a dedicated team of volunteers to keep it open in the face of vanishing local authority funding.

Shoalstone Pool CIC will do everything it can over the coming weeks to repair the damage caused and make sure the pool is open as planned for the summer season, but we need your help to make this possible!

Funds raised will be used to pay for the materials and specialist labour required to support the work of our caretaker and volunteers and make sure the pool is safe to use for the Brixham community and visitors from further afield. Any surplus will be used for general maintenance and improvements to the pool site, furthering our goal to make the pool the best that it can be.
