- So the story goes, in the late 50's after a tragic drowning of a local child, Mr Boff - then the head teacher of SRH School decided to build a school swimming pool to hopefully ensure that this sort of accident would never happen again. Year 6 boys were enlisted to help dig out the pool. The pool was then used by the school and the community.
- Whether this story is true or not, we believe we have an amazing asset that just needs modernizing and utilizing. Our community had the fore sight to build this facility, and we believe we have an obligation to carry on their good work.
- For over 30 years, at various times, parents and staff have investigated the possibility of modernizing the school pool; unfortunately nothing ever came to fruition. Financial donations have been made over this period and still nothing has happened.
- In the year when the Olympics come to Great Britain, what better time to finally fulfill this desire to have a swimming pool in Debenham - The Debenham 2012 Swimmimg Pool.
