A NEW Year’s day swim at an outdoor pool today has been cancelled.

The cold water event at Hathersage Swimming Pool was called off due to technical problems.

Organisers hope it may take place in the early spring instead.

A spokesman said: “We regret that owing to technical problems, the New Year’s Day swim has had to be cancelled.

“We hope to reschedule the event for early spring.

“Apologies for any inconvenience and disappointment caused.”

The outdoor heated pool, at Oddfellows Road, underwent major refurbishment in 2011. It first opened in 1936 thanks to a generous donation from George Herbert Lawrence, a Sheffield manufacturer.
