WITH its eighth Annual General Meeting (AGM) right around the corner, a board of trustees overseeing one of the country's oldest outdoor swimming pools is calling for new faces to join them.

Victoria Park Buckfastleigh Trustees, who oversee Buckfastleigh Open Air Pool and Victoria Park, are to hold their next AGM at 7pm on Monday, April 24.

At the meeting, which is to be held over Zoom and is accessible via a link obtained by emailing [email protected], trustees will present a report on the past 12 months of activities, finances and electing Trustees and appointments as Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.

There will also be discussions of the year ahead.

A spokesman for Victoria Park Buckfastleigh Trustees said: 'This is a very challenging time, and as we enter our 136th year as a Charity, and 126th year as a swimming pool, we very much need your support and involvement in ensuring we can survive into the future.

'We would very much welcome new people to join our volunteer team, as Trustees, fundraisers, event organisers, ground maintenance, or in reception.'

Those interested in becoming a trustee must send an email to [email protected] by Monday, April 17, and must ensure that they meet the conditions as set out in Charity Commission and Companies House regulations.
