Update – May 2022

Annual Draining of Bude Sea Pool
We would like to make all users of and visitors to Bude Sea Pool aware that from next Monday 9th May that Bude Sea Pool will not be available for use. It will be drained to allow for dredging and removing all the silt, sand and rocks that accumulate over the year. A further update will be given when it is in use once more.


The works will be undertaken by local company Vanstones who do a fantastic job for us each and every year. Please give Vanstones the space they need to conduct the work safely and efficiently. 


This annual exercise has always cost the Friends of Bude Sea Pool in the region of £30,000. We ask for your support to help us meet the additional £10,000K premium that has been newly added this year by Vanstone’s insurance company to work below the tide line. Friends of Bude Sea Pool is expected to meet the cost.
