SWIMMERS campaigning to save Burnham pool from closure are holding a meeting to rally support.

Save Our Swimming Pool (SOS) Campaign is being headed up by Chamber of Trade member Tom Ashton and a meeting will be held on Thursday for residents who want to keep it open.

Chamber of Trade spokesman Alex Turco said: "The chamber is supporting this group on the basis that as businesses we need to maintain resources and attractions so that the town remains vibrant and people have multiple reasons to come into Burnham."

Wells Constituency MP David Heathcoat-Amory is also backing campaigners. He said: "The pool is a great asset for promising young swimmers who need such facilities for training."

The meeting will be held at 6.30pm at Lakeside off Westfield Road.
