Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool is run and maintained entirely by volunteers in their spare time. The only people we employ are our lifeguards and they are mainly recruited from the student community. As such they are only available outside of college/university terms. Therefore, we just do not have the resources available to open the pool all year round. In addition, the cost of heating the outdoor pool during the colder months would be prohibitively expensive against any revenue we could make outside the summer months.
