    30 Jun 2018

    For some time I've wanted the region to have a charity night and so I've organised one on Saturday 30th June. The venue will be Princes Sports Club - where we have the Chesterfield Swim. It's a swim night with the usual facilities, but we've also the use of the patio area for table tennis, petanque. I'm also putting on refreshments.
    I'm selling tickets (numbers are limited) priced at £8-00 each. This is an increase on the normal cost, but it will cover refreshments. Tickets will be on sale at the next Chesterfield Swim on 9th June.
    Any surplus from the event will be sent to a children's charity.

    Friday 13th July at 18:30 - "Bare All for Polar Bears", a naked fun run of 800 metres at Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster. This event will raise funds for Polar Bear conservation at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
    From the Report on the "Bare All for Polar Bears" event in 2017:
    From humble beginnings, this event is now an established fixture in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Calendar. For the first time registrations had passed the 100 mark. The weather conditions were not that warm during the day, but prior to the run starting a thermometer registered 21 Celsius – certainly warm enough for the runners. At this event the naturists are obvious – they’re the ones not bothering with the foil blankets at the start.
    For the uninitiated, the idea is to raise sponsorship money and run round an 800 metre course past the polar bear enclosure.  It's a great intro to social nudity, great fun and a lovely way to raise money for a good cause!

    You may know that the polar bear is on the endangered animals list owing to shrinking sea ice in the Arctic.
    People are encouraged to register, to raise sponsorship money in aid of conservation of Polar Bears and to complete an 800 metre course past the Polar Bear enclosure at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster.

    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 17.00. 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.
    For further details please contact Andrew Calow ( andrewcalow@hotmail.com, 0114 2215579 ).
