Swimming Pool

Thorncombe has a community outside swimming pool, located at the back of the village hall car-park, also adjoining to the School.

The swimming pool is open from April/May until September/October, depending on the weather.  The pool is run by a committee who undertake all of the necessary checks and cleaning procedures on a daily basis.

Keys are available for use of the swimming pool, from the school or village shop.  The cost for the 2015 season is £45, which includes a £10 refundable deposit, or this can be donated to the swimming pool fund if desired.

Rules for the swimming pool use are given when a key is issued, to include times of use and safety procedures.

Thorncombe Village

Thorncombe is a thriving, happy and busy village with many activities for all.

Village Shop 

The shop is situated in the heart of Thorncombe village, almost opposite the church.

The shop offers an extended range of goods including a deli counter, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat, locally sourced wherever possible, and some very well chosen wines as well as beers and spirits. There is also a cafe area for teas, coffees, cakes and sandwiches.

The shop has also picked up ‘Best Local Food Retailer’ in the Western Gazette Taste Awards for 2014!  Congratulations to everyone involved who keeps the shop going – staff, volunteers and shoppers alike – this is huge!
