Welcoming all, the great news is that you all can help shed those extra Christmas calories in our fully heated outdoor pool or perhaps you could help the younger ones burn off all that pent-up holiday energy. Either way, for the first time in the charity’s history, you can swim this festive season in Bovey’s very own pool.
