Another busy week at Chewton Pool



As  you drive past Chewton Pool you may think we are putting our feet up waiting for the next swim season to begin on 26 November.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

We are busy with training staff and volunteers, organising kiosk and staff schedules, fundraising and all the work behind the scenes so that you can have a great swim season.

Last Friday evening we attended the Victorian Regional Achievement & Community Awards. Chewton Pool was a finalist. It was truly inspirational to hear the stories of Victorian individuals, businesses and community groups like ours doing such extraordinary work in their place. We were very proud to be among them!

On Sunday our volunteers rallied to the Lancia Rally, where we sold a range of gourmet sausages to raise funds for the pool. Classic car owners from across the country were enjoying a beautiful day in Castlemaine at the Western Reserve.

Our AGM is coming up on Sunday 8 November to be held at Chewton Pool. We will commence with a BBQ at 1.00pm. Get on down to enjoy the free BBQ and to hear about our upcoming season.

We are keen for families to be well represented on the management of the pool, so if you have a talent for marketing, social media, governance, WHS, project management, working with volunteers, the pool committee would welcome your involvement. In 2015/16 we have some significant projects coming up, so it’s all hands on deck.

If you have an interest, please email your details to chewtonsplash@hotmail.com and we will get nomination forms to you.
