    Swims now take place in Sheffield  at King Edward's Swimming Pool, Sheffield.
    The pool address is :-
    King Edward's Swimming Pool,
    Clarkehouse Road
    Sheffield
    S10 2LB
     
    For details of the pool please see their website ( http://kesp.co.uk/ )  It is an unusual pool, being 30m long with two shallow ends, somewhat deeper in the middle but still easy to stand. Our impression is that the pool is warmer than Chapeltown.
    There is plenty of street parking, free on Sundays. Outside of school hours we can also park for free in the school staff car park adjacent . There are two entrances:  I'd suggest the Glossop Road entrance is the one to use, but there is also an entrance on Newbould Lane which means a longer walk.
    For those arriving by public transport the pool is very close to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and is served by the 120 bus, the closest tram stop is the University of Sheffield.
    If you are hungry/thirsty there is a Wetherspoon's ( The Francis Newton ) virtually opposite.
    For location see Google Maps - the pool is near the centre:-
    https://goo.gl/maps/G5FibCReNcB2
    The swims will normally take place on the third Sunday of the month, from 1530 to 1715 ( all persons to leave by 1725 ). Cost will be £5 ( BN/INF, cards to be shown ) or £7 otherwise. The pool does not have lockers and swimmers are advised to bring a bag for their clothes/possessions and to take them poolside as the secure cloakroom will not  be staffed.

    19 March 2017 11:00 - 19 March 2017 13:00

    The next Regional Meeting of the Yorkshire and East Midlands Region will take place on Sunday March 19th at 11am at the Commercial, 107 Station Road, Chapeltown, Sheffield S35 2BB. The pub is ideally located for the M1 junction 35.
    Let me know if there is anything you wish to discuss at the meeting.
    Since there are changes afoot for clubs in the BN Magazine, this is one topic we can cover ( with 4 landed clubs being to the north of Sheffield, it would be beneficial to hold the meeting on that side of the city).
    After the meeting, there will be the opportunity to buy lunch downstairs (Check out the menu at thecommie.co.uk ). After lunch there is the Sheffield swim 7 1/4 miles away.
    Agenda and previous minutes will be sent out nearer the meeting. This meeting is open to club delegates of member clubs, as well as BN Members in the Region.

    For details of the pool please see their website ( http://kesp.co.uk/ )  It is an unusual pool, being 30m long with two shallow ends, somewhat deeper in the middle but still easy to stand. Our impression is that the pool is warmer than Chapeltown.
    There is plenty of street parking, free on Sundays. Outside of school hours we can also park for free in the school staff car park adjacent . There are two entrances:  I'd suggest the Glossop Road entrance is the one to use, but there is also an entrance on Newbould Lane which means a longer walk.
    For those arriving by public transport the pool is very close to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and is served by the 120 bus, the closest tram  stop is the University of Sheffield.
    If you are hungry/thirsty there is a Wetherspoon's ( The Francis Newton ) virtually opposite.
    For location see Google Maps - the pool is near the centre:-

    The swims will normally take place on the third Sunday of the month, from 1530 to 1715 ( all persons to leave by 1725 ). Cost will be £5 ( BN/INF, cards to be shown ) or £7 otherwise. The pool does not have lockers and swimmers are advised to bring a bag for their clothes/possessions and to take them poolside as the secure cloakroom will not  be staffed.
