Meeting to decide future of Bude sea pool
A charitable trust set up to save a historic sea pool is holding a meeting to decide the future of the facility.
The Friends of Bude Sea Pool is holding a public meeting later this month to talk about its future direction.
The pool, which was built in the 1930s to provide a safe haven from swimming in the open sea, was previously administered by Cornwall Council until funding was withdrawn in 2011.
The volunteer-run charity was set up the same year to secure the pool's future and took over its day-to-day management in 2012. It now raises money to pay for the pool's upkeep and maintenance.

A spokesman said: "The sea pool depends on volunteers to step up and share some of the workload involved in running the pool and administering a charity.
"FoBSP have made massive progress in just two years, but in order to keep improving the pool the team needs… support."
Work started this autumn to renovate the pool's sea wall, but the friends project they will need another £25,000 for the next stage of the vital repairs. Fundraising initiatives for the popular facility have been taking place throughout the year.
Earlier this year, 11-year-old Samuel Jennings successfully completed a gruelling 92-mile cycle from Bude to Land's End in 30-degree heat top raise money for the pool.
The meeting takes place at the Falcon Hotel in Bude on October 21, at 7pm.
