Buckfastleigh Open Air Pool cannot survive without the help of volunteers. We are looking for people with a range of skills, from lawyers and accountants to plumbers and builders, fundraising volunteers to lifeguards. From helping out in the tuck shop, to providing some practical DIY help, there are lots of ways you can get involved. You will be joining a lively group, passionate about saving our pool. So come on, get involved!

Email bfl.pool@yahoo.co.uk to find out more about volunteering or call 01364 642222 during opening hours!


Reception and tuck shop

Can you help out with running the reception and the tuck shop? If you can sign up for a regular slot, that would be marvellous. If you can only help out on an ad-hoc basis, that is absolutely fine – whatever you can manage.

Call us on 01364 642222 during opening hours or email bfl.pool@yahoo.co.uk if you would like to work in our tuck shop.


In the closed season, we need volunteers to help out with maintenance tasks, from cleaning and painting to more skilled tasks. If you have building and maintenance skills such as plumbing, electrical and carpentry or even if you can wield a paintbrush or mop, and can spare a few hours a week you would be most welcome to join our team.



Are you good at organising fundraising events? Have you been looking for a reason to do that sponsored swim? We depend on donations and have been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm of our fundraising team.

If you have a fundraising idea, let us know and we will help promote it. Email us at bfl.pool@yahoo.co.uk


It costs a lot of money to run and maintain a swimming pool. Buckfastleigh open air pool is funded by swimming revenue, volunteers’ fundraising, sponsorship and donations.

Your donation will help towards developing the pool for generations to come. No matter how small, your donation will make a real difference.
