Funding boost for pool project
By Caitlin Miles A PROJECT to get Spreydon a pool has been given a funding boost. The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board has given $18,000 to the project to have a community pool based at West Spreydon School. The pool has been a long time coming, a committee was launched in 2009 to repair the original. Repairs were finished in February 2011, shortly before the 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck which destroyed the committee’s hard work, damaging the pool beyond repair.

Zealand Community Trust and various local businesses. The pool has come in pieces from the US. The design is more likely to survive an earthquake – with minimal damage. The pieces move better as they can be taken apart and put back together. The money from the community board will go towards the building costs of the pool. The pool committee also plans to put in changing sheds, filters, landscaping and fencing. It is also looking at options around putting in a hoist system to make the pool more accessible which will be dependant on funding.
