Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Front Page -

Eli, 6, and Damien Hunt, cool down in the wa­ter with an in­flat­able tube at Fonty’s Pool on New Year’s Day. The pool was one of many pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions to cel­e­brate the new year, along with Big Brook Dam and Man­jimup’s Tim­ber Park.

The new year brought with it per­fect swim­ming weather which peo­ple at Fonty’s Pool took full ad­van­tage of yes­ter­day.

Fonty’s Pool owner Kelly Beis­sel said the car­a­van park was fully booked up un­til the Jan­uary long week­end.

“It usu­ally is most years and peo­ple of­ten come to use the pool we have on New Year’s Day,” she said.

“It is not only peo­ple stay­ing at the park though, we let any­one come and use the pool for a small fee and so lo­cal peo­ple are here to cel­e­brate the new year as well.”

The ma­jor­ity of peo­ple started to ar­rive about 10.30am to swim and use the div­ing board and in­flat­a­bles at the pool.
