Yyaassss!! Our glorious Cleveland Pools¬†have just been awarded ¬£4.7 million from the National Lottery!! WWAHHOOO! Massive congratulations to all those who’ve campaigned tirelessly to keep Britain’s oldest open-air public swimming pools going and we can’t wait to see the restoration, development and to take many, many dips when it reopens!

Also…Sydney Gardens have been successful in their application to the Heritage Lottery ‘Parks for People’ fund, meaning a new cafe kiosk, new exciting play & active zone and refurbishment of the four tennis courts!!
