A TARGET of £400,000 to refurbish Settle Swimming Pool and create a cafe and additional recreation space has been boosted by a donation of almost £5,276.

At a recent AGM of the Settle Area Swimming Pool charity, a cheque from the proceeds of the Settle Open Gardens event was handed over from Alan Smith to Pat Taylor, chairman of the swimming pool trustees.

The pool also runs a charity shop in Duke Street, Settle, which raised over £49,000 between April 2018 and May this year. Volunteers to help run the shop are always welcome and and can contact the pool for details.
