Friends of Stour Connect’s story
The Hydrotherapy Pool based at Stour Connect in Sturminster Newton and owned by Dorset County Council shut its doors in May 2018. The Pool had been delivering an invaluable and unique service to over 40 students from Yewstock (SEN) School and a further 30 members of the local community.
Thanks to your support, the Friends of Stour Connect was able to work with Dorset County Council to secure the funding needed to repair and reopen the pool.
The pool is being run by social enterprise Neptune and is used by Yewstock School as well as being open to the wider community.
