Never too chilly to swim

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Countryfile -

SUM­MER may be over but pupils at Ham­street pri­mary are still able to ben­e­fit from a so­lar-heated swim­ming pool.

The school is the first in Ash­ford to have so­lar heat­ing pan­els and is one of only 10 in Kent.

Ridge Crest Clean­ing, which works in part­ner­ship with schools to help them save money, do­nated £2,000, a third of the cost re­quired to help fi­nance the re­new­able en­ergy ini­tia­tive.

Head teacher Jane Macey said: “The so­lar pan­els mean the chil­dren will now be pro­vided with heated swim­ming fa­cil­i­ties from May to Oc­to­ber.”
