FoNESP has been established to represent residents, pool user groups and the wider community in our campaign to prevent the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) from closing the pool in March 2018.
We believe the pool has a future!
FoNESP formed in October 2017 in response to the news that the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust are going to close the New Earswick Pool in March 2018.
The pool was opened In 1966 by the Trust with he support of the local community, notably children being asked to donate 'Half A Crown' and the villagers joining a 'Buy a Brick' scheme.
The pool is used by many diverse groups of swimmers, including the New Earswick Disabled Swimming Club and the longstanding New Earswick Swimming Club, as well as several swimming lesson providers and the local primary school.
We firmly believe that pool can be run and managed sustainably and are asking the JRHT to rethink their decision and work with us to create a sustainable and successful pool that serves the local community and can contribute to the health and wellbeing of future generations of users from across York.
