September 2017

Fiona Clarke told the story of Jesmond Pool (as detailed in her book, pictured below). The pool first opened in 1938, but was closed by the council in 1991. The community came to the rescue and the pool re-opened in 1992 and has flourished since. We thank Fiona for taking time to share with us the inspirational story of our cherished community leisure centre.
