Community Grant for Rushden Swimming Club

Rushden Swimming Club, based at the Splash Leisure Pool on Station Road, are an excellent community group who have been very successful in teaching many youngsters to swim, even producing several local swimming champions.

Due to the restrictions caused by social distancing, the Splash Pool has had to limit the amount of members attending at any one time. This meant the club has had to book more pool time than usual and at an additional cost. Increasing membership fees to cover these additional costs was not considered possible since some member's parents had also suffered a loss of income due to Covid-19.

The Rushden Town Council Community Grant was awarded to the club to help them maintain the member's attendance at the pool, without increasing the financial burden on their parents.

We have also awarded the following community groups with grants; 1st Rushden Scouts Group, Rush2 the Den and Rushden Sea Cadets.

If you run a community group or charity and would like more details on how to apply for a Rushden Town Council Community Grant, email:info@rushdentowncouncil.gov.uk
