A brand new state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool built to support students at Derwen College will officially open on Friday, 13th September.
The grand opening will see attendees including local dignitaries including the High Sheriff of Shropshire and Oswestry Mayor, as well as generous sponsors whose donations have made the project possible. Architects and builders who brought the vision to life will also be visiting.
The new Bradbury Hydrotherapy Pool will be open to students as part of their physiotherapy, health and wellbeing. The state-of-the-art pool incorporates accessible changing rooms, physiotherapy area and features a warm water pool with sensory lighting and music. Students with mobility issues will be supported to access the pool with the use of a dedicated hoist and shower trolley.
Derwen College Principal Meryl Green: “Derwen College is pleased to officially open the Bradbury Hydrotherapy Pool in September. We have been able to design and build this fantastic facility thanks to generous donations from the community. The hydrotherapy pool will prove an invaluable resource for students providing them with physiotherapy as well as a sensory experience.
The hydrotherapy pool has benefited from generous donations from community groups including The Bradbury Foundation; St James’s Place Foundation; and Garfield Weston Foundation who, between them, donated £330,000.
