    On the 14th April 2015 after a protracted and fraught process, Teignbridge District Council transferred the trusteeship of Buckfastleigh Open Air Pool to the local 'Friends' group, along with its attached Victoria Park and Bungalow youth club building. This meant that a £75,000 Sport England grant to upgrade facilities could be awarded before the deadline to use it ran out, and work began last week to strip old tiling out before contractors arrive next week to fit a new lining. A beautiful new logo and a lick of paint this season will propel the pool into an exciting new phase, including longer opening hours and its use out of season by those wild swimmers who might want to train in cold water or hire it.
