Swimming Pool

Why leave a gift in your will to the Waterside Community Trust?

We are lucky enough to receive the continued custom of our many loyal Members also parents and grandparents who wish children to learn to swim. Additionally we enjoy the support of Ryde Town Council. On this basis we have run Waterside Pool since 2011.  
Your gift to Waterside, however small, can make a real difference. Our efficient operation, with volunteer help, covers our costs, but we rely on donations to enhance and improve our pool for future generations to continue to serve the community.
There are also benefits to your family directly as giving a legacy gift in your will also help to reduce inheritance tax. 

Who are the Waterside Community Trust?


Established in 2011 as a ‘Not for Profit’ Company, a group of local people became Trustees and took over the Waterside Pool from Isle of Wight County Council to save it from closure. In 2016, the Trust became a Charity.

There are several ways in which you can leave a legacy gift to Waterside Community Trust. 

leave a Residuary Gift A residuary gift (i.e. a percentage of your estate) will help make the biggest difference to our Charity, as it will keep up with inflation and retain its value better than a fixed sum of money.  

leave a Codicil | If you would like to add a gift to Waterside Community Trust to an existing will, you can do so easily by using a codicil. A codicil is a document which amends (eg alters or adds to) a will. If you have made more than one will, it is important that your codicil relates to your most recent will.
