That this House notes Westbury's unique and historic swimming pool which has been in service since 1888 having been constructed in 1887 by William Henry Laverton for 5,000; further notes the contribution it makes to fitness and wellbeing in Westbury and the surrounding area; further notes the remedial benefits of its relatively warm water for people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease; observes that the pool is the home of Westbury's thriving amateur swimming club; further notes that Dr Ian Gordon and Mr Simon Inglis in their book, Great Lengths, the historic indoor swimming pools of Britain, cite the Westbury pool as a firm candidate for listing; commends the pool's operators for planning to take part in Marie Curie Cancer Care's Swimathon in April 2010; and offers its good wishes for another century of service as a leisure and heritage facility in Westbury.
