BRAVE swimmers put aside the gloomy Bank Holiday weather to take a dip at Bourne Outdoor Swimming Pool, which opened for the summer season on Saturday.

Volunteers have been working hard with the Bourne Outdoor Pool Preservation Trust to get the Abbey Lawn attraction ready for its 22nd season and chief photographer Tim Wilson was on hand to see the first swimmers jump in.

Trust committee chairman Mandy Delaine-Smith said: “Our charity-run pool is Bourne’s hidden gem and we need people to support it and come along in order for it to keep going for many years to come.”

“The pool and surrounding area look absolutely fantastic. Everybody, including our regular volunteers and helpers from RAF Wittering, has been wonderful.”
