‘Richmond Swimming Pool is proud to announce the reopening of the hand built crazy golf course.  The 8 holes depict the town of Richmond and the Dales with bespoke obstacles crafted as exact mini replicas . This challenging course is a favorite with locals and tourists and is a must when visiting the Pool.

The work was kindly carried out courtesy of voluntary efforts by B4G – Build for Growth, the firm that had made the  capital improvements to the swimming pool and the generous support from our friends at Darlington Carpet centre, who painstakingly removed the old putting green and laid a new green at no cost to the Leisure Trust

Jan Francis, a volunteer from the Richmond Triathlon club added the finishing touches by singlehandedly painting the wood fence and surrounds again at no cost to the Leisure Trust.

As a charity Richmondshire Leisure Trusts relies on voluntary support as it continues to operate under increasing  costs and these regular donations of time, resources and great will are vital for the trust going forward.

The Trust general Manager pays sincere thanks to everyone involved.
