About us

The directors of the Community Pool CIC. and the management of Waltham Forest College regret to announce that, after ten years of operation as a community organisation, the Community Pool in Waltham Forest College will be closing its doors on 31st January 2020. The Community Pool CIC will cease trading on that date.

Unfortunately the terms of the lease of the pool mean that The Community Pool CIC cannot generate the capital needed in order to create an environmentally efficient and economically viable swimming pool for the long term. The directors have taken the decision that The Community Pool CIC cannot continue trading in these circumstances.

We extend our thanks to the people and organisations that have supported the pool over the last decade: the pool staff, our users, and the many others who have given their time and efforts to provide this facility to the people of Waltham Forest.

The directors of The Community Pool CIC and the management of Waltham Forest College are discussing the future of the pool in the hope that it can reopen for community use and education some time soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this announcement, then please email info@thecommunitypool.org.uk
