Friends Of The Trinkie And
The North Baths
A small group of people who got together and decided to do something about putting the Trinkie outdoor swimming pool back in order by repairing it and repainting it over the last few years. They are not like most community groups nowadays in that they have no rules, no constitution, no committee structure and refer to themselves as "E Freends o' e' Trinke an e' North Baths". Very much a "can do" bunch with nothing seemingly beyond their capabilities - prepared to move anything that needs done or moved whether sand, rocks, repairs to the amazing rebuild of the walls at the North Baths, clear years of sea rocks from the road - anything.
Even as the North Baths approaches a reopening on 24 July at 1.00pm they are already eyeing up their next piece of work to tidy up some of the land around the North Baths.
Many months of dogged determination, hard work, cajoling begging and borrowing of equipment and materials has brought the North Baths to its present place. Local contractors have helped with loans of diggers and other requirements.
Although no formal committee structure is in place the FREENDS
did open a bank account as donations have trickled in. Anyone else who
would like to make a donation to the ongoing work can send it to -

There are serious concerns about a large hole and crack in the pool wall ,it is feared that unless a section of the wall is replaced with a new reinforced wall it will quickly deteriorate under the constant force of the tides. The cost of repairs would be considerable therefore the committee are appealing to the public and "weekers in other places" for donations to cover repairs and ongoing maintenance.
If anyone wishes to donate time, money or services contact Patty Coghill on 01955 602456 any help would be gratefully appreciated.
