This website is a celebration of the value of community assets in regional and rural communities.
Lots of people use our pool – families and individuals from Chewton, Faraday, Elphinstone, Fryerstown, Campbells Creek and even Castlemaine come to Chewton to swim. It’s safer than rivers and dams, has shady trees, a lifeguard and icy poles. Its small size and its reputation for the best sparkling pool water around, are just part of the attraction. We think small is beautiful. Chewton pool is just how we like it.
This website is operated by Chewton Pool Inc. an incorporated association that has been appointed the Crown Land (Reserves) Manager of the Chewton Pool since July 2011, their contract having been renewed in 2014 for another three years.
The aims of the association are –
- To manage the ongoing maintenance and development of the Chewton swimming pool;
- To manage the seasonal operations of the Chewton swimming pool;
- To conduct fundraising to support the operations of the Chewton swimming pool;
- To undertake these activities in the interests of the community.
A Committee of Management of ten members is responsible for the pool’s operation.
