Swimming pools in Crawley, Oxted and Caterham will benefit from grants from the government’s Swimming Pool Support Fund. 

Tandridge District Council which operates Tandridge Leisure Centre in Oxted and De Stafford Sports Centre in Caterham will receive £197,000 from the fund.  The fund is to help ensure centres remain open so they can continue to provide essential swimming and leisure activities. 

The MP for Crawley, Henry Smith, welcomed the launch of the government’s Swimming Pool Support Fund; K2 Crawley will benefit from over £290,000.  He said he “knows how important swimming is for many people across Crawley” and understands “that swimming pools and leisure facilities have struggled over recent months as operating costs have increased”.
