The Hamley Bridge Swimming Pool is a volunteer-run organisation. On days when there are no volunteers available, the pool will be closed. The more volunteers we have, the less likely this is to occur.

Anyone who is interested in volunteering is encouraged to either see staff on duty or phone Michelle Hatch as Volunteer Co-ordinator 0459 797 981. If you lack confidence, we will ensure you are rostered on with a competent pool supervisor. Training is provided.
