Our committee members are all volunteers who generously give up some of their time to help build a swimming pool in Cullompton. New members are always welcome to join us - we need all the help we can get!
Chair: Liza Oxford-Booth
Liza took over as Chair of the Cully Pool Committee in August 2016. She moved to Kentisbeare in October 2015 and through running her own business quickly became interested and involved with the current affairs of Cullompton. She also belongs to the Culm Valley in Business group, the Town Team and the Culm Valley Dementia Action Alliance. Liza is a fitness enthusiast and was once a P.E. teacher. She was disappointed to find there wasn’t a pool in Cullompton and is keen to see the project become a reality.

Local Fundraising Coordinator: Mary Christie
Mary moved to Cullompton 7 years ago. Originally a government officer and later raising a family and working with people with severe learning difficulties and profound handicaps, she has always enjoyed and appreciated the wide-ranging benefits of swimming. She is passionate about both swimming and hydrotherapy being available locally for everyone of all ages and abilities.
Assistant Shop Manager: Lynn Craddock
Lynn has lived in Cullompton for over 30 years. Although she can swim, she would love to improve her ability and confidence in the water. She is therefore happy to work on the committee to help provide a pool for the town.
