Welcome to Harry's Hydrotherapy Pool
LATEST UPDATE - 5th November 2020
Unfortunately, due to the latest Covid-19 Lockdown
regulations, Harry's Hydro is closed to all users
except the children at Critchill School from 5th November 2020.
We aim to reopen at the end of the 4 week lockdown period, subject to Government Regulations.
Please contact Paula Fox regarding any further information -

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.
