Celebrate Ramsbottom Pool’s 40th birthday with 1972 prices

Ramsbottom Pool opened in 1972 by Councillor H. Mills, chairman of the council
Swimmers are being offered special rates this weekend (21-22 July) as Ramsbottom Pool and Fitness Centre marks its 40 birthday.

To celebrate, the centre is charging 1972 prices to swim on Saturday and Sunday (21 and 22 July) – just 12p for adults, 8p for juniors, and it’s free for children under 5 and adults aged 60 and over.

These prices will be in place between 10.30am and 2pm on Saturday and 8am and noon on Sunday. Come and make a splash and join us to celebrate!

It was back on 22 July 1972 that the swimming pool was officially opened to the public by the Chairman of the Ramsbottom Urban District Council, Councillor Mills.

The Fitness Centre has recently been upgraded with the addition of state-of-the-art gym facilities, additional changing facilities and various modernisations.

The pool still stands, and is enjoyed by many of us here in Ramsbottom.
