About this Event
This is our first swim of the year!
We are subscribers to The Nap Ministry and thought it was best to ease ourselves into the year and set solid foundations to kick on from instead of rushing to be the 'first' to do things.
Last year , we resumed our social swims and have had over 40 people (mostly new) engage with our sessions, we want to thank each and every one of you for being a part of our Swim Dem story last year.
It's a good rule of thumb to book the swimming session 7 days (22/01/) in advance (if you're a Better member) or 5 days (25/01/) in advance if you don't have a membership, you can find extra info about the centre and book here - https://www.better.org.uk/leisure-centre/london/hackney/london-fields-lido.
We have not hired a lane for this session, you will have to book a swim through the leisure centre in advance.
After the swim, we'll walk over to Broadway market and pick up sweet and savoury snacks that will fuel us for a canal stroll to one of the pubs near Victoria Park for some needed celebrations to say goodbye to January.
What to bring:
- Swimming costume, hat and goggles
- Cosmetic bag
- A bag for wet kit
- £1 or 20p for the locker
- A smile!
During sessions, we are swimming in public swimming lanes, so, while there may be many of us, we do not own or hire the lane (yet!) so please give space to other swimmers and do not wait in a line at the end of the pool, you must leave space in the middle of the lane at the wall for swimmers to turn from, otherwise we get complaints.
We often go for brunch after our sessions, please do come along for that if you are able to.
