LATEST UPDATE - 20th February 2022

Some Covid measures still remain in place at Harry's Hydro. Regretfully
this means there may be a delay in booking users in.

see Special Measures page

We apologise to users for the temporary closure of the pool due to Storm Eunice, resulting in a power cut for some 33 hours.  The pool reopened on Sunday 20th Feb.
During the Christmas period essential maintenance was carried out by Rock Pools & Spas Ltd, and the Trustees are enormously grateful for this work being done over the festive season.

About Harry's Hydro

We are a small local charity that built and runs a community Hydrotherapy pool in Frome, Somerset for those with disabilities, sensory, behavioural or learning difficulties, a life threatening illness (e.g. cancer) or a limiting condition (e.g. rheumatism or fibromyalgia). It is available to all ages, from babies to the elderly.

Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy undertaken in an environment of warm water and high air temperature, the combination of which relaxes the patient and eases pain, which frees the user to move in ways they cannot on land. The pool and environment at these warm temperatures is also very effective for those with learning difficulties as it satisfies and calms their sensory needs thus allowing them to use the more complex thinking and communication parts of the brain.

 

The pool is in memory of local boy Harry Fox who died aged 13 months.
