Great local support has seen $275,000 raised towards a covered pool for Motueka. This really helps when approaching major funders.
Nelson / Tasman
After years of hopes and hurdles, Motueka is now in the position to get its very own indoor community swimming pool. Thanks to thinking outside the square, work is now under way to create an affordable, good-quality pool facility for Motueka. The Motueka High School swimming pool will be enclosed, with added changing rooms for the general public, a pool for young learner swimmers created and with Lions and Lionesses funding a heated therapeutic pool built.
This will allow the pool to be used for at least half of the year - and ultimately heated for even longer use as a further development. The therapeutic pool will be available for year-round use. An independent feasibility study, funded by the Lotteries Commission, has been completed and signed off by the school, GSM and the Motueka swimming club, confirming the viability and design concept of the pool.
The Motueka Community Swimming Pool Committee runs under the umbrella of Goods Sports Motueka, a registered charity. All donations are tax deductible if a receipt is requested.

There is now $210,000 on deposit with the bank and another $54,000 promised from local businesses to assist with construction. Major funders (Rata, Lotteries) have connected with our project. They understand the community need, appreciate the great local support but are looking for regional support before committing funds. We are talking with Tasman District Council on the form that this can take.
On behalf of the Motueka Pool Committee I would like to thank you very much for donating your tax credits to our Pool fund. Every little bit counts and we are very grateful for your support. Thanks Sue
Good morning Mark - what a lovely birthday present for Peter and a bonus for the swimming pool fund raising. To date we have $240,000 in Term Investments with NBS Motueka and we are very grateful for your donation. Sue (Treasurer)
Thank you so much for your generous donation. The wheels of progress turn slowly but we are getting there and Motueka will have an amazing facility - we need to keep the young children water savvy and we can do that when we have a pool and we need to provide a Therapeutic pool for those who need it. Thanks again.
Hi Mary many, many thanks for your donation. Every bit counts and we realise its been a long time coming but now - its definite and we are on our way to providing Motueka with an awesome asset. Thanks again
