Elmore pool committee president Matt Henke is hoping people will put up their hand to help out at the pool.ELAINE COONEY January 31, 2014 4:23am
Elmore pool is urgently seeking volunteers to help run the gate and kiosk.
Committee president Matt Henke said it was important to have someone at the gate and kiosk so the lifeguard could focus on her job.
He said the committee relied on volunteers to take money from pay-per-use pool users and to sell refreshments.
He said excluding the lifeguard, who was paid for by City of Greater Bendigo council, all workers were volunteers.
Mr Henke said the pool did not aim to turn over high profits but to give Elmore residents a recreational facility.
He said a group of women in their 70s and 80s used the pool before it opened daily and families and school groups used the pool frequently.
Mr Henke said he would be grateful if Elmore residents offered to volunteer one day week.
The pool will be open from 4pm to 7pm during school terms.
