Hathersage open air pool to open early for swimathon

Have your say

Hathersage Open Air swimming pool will open a week earlier than normal this year – to host a Sport Relief swimathon.

Staff will open the pool on Friday, March 21, to allow more than 80 swimmers to take part in the fundraising event.

A new underwater speaker system will be used in the pool, with swimmers able to request tunes.

The following day there will be water polo, aqua aerobics, inflatable fun sessions for youngsters and lane swimming for more serious swimmers.

Local band Mill Stone Grit and solo singer Ben Pedlar will also perform at the side of the pool and refreshments will be available.
