A BUDDING designer helped launch Wirksworth’s new community-owned swimming pool.

The pool has been transferred from Derbyshire Dales District Council to a charitable business, established by residents.

Seven-year-old Billy Marsh, from Wirksworth Church of England Infants won a competition to design a new logo for the company and as part of his prize spent the day working with the town’s Orange Box Design, to adapt his drawing.

The pool is now operating a full programme. Visit for details.
