Friends of Jesus Green Pool

The Friends of Jesus Green Pool group was set up to arrange social opportunities and events for patrons of the pool.

It also acts as the main consultation body and public voice for the pool.

Recent group activities include start- and end-of-season parties and an annual day trip to Dunwich every October.

Please contact the pool for more information on the group.
