NUNDLE Pool will celebrate an historic milestone on Saturday.

It was officially opened 50 years ago and will throw open the gates to the community this afternoon, as a way of thanks.

The Nundle Amateur Swimming Club will run a fundraising barbecue from noon and a short official program will commence at 1pm.

Tamworth Region Mayor Col Murray will be among the guests.

Nundle Swimming Pool was a joint project involving the community and the then Nundle Shire, at a cost of about $21,000.

It included dressing sheds, filters, all fencing, concrete paths and a wading pool. The facility was originally opened by then New England MP Ian Sinclair.

The pool now falls under the control of Tamworth Regional Council.
