Plans are being made for a swimming pool in the grounds of Wiveliscombe County Secondary School.

Taunton Divisional Education Executive heard on Tuesday of the ways in which the school intends to raise the cost, over and above the £200 grant which has been made in similar cases.

The Executive noted with pleasure the school's desire to undertake this work, and strongly supported the governors' application for a grant.
