Road closure in Grantham this weekend

We have received notification from Lincolnshire ASA of a road closure in Grantham this weekend.

The notification is as follows:

“It has come to our attention that one of the main routes through Grantham will be closed this coming weekend (19/20th Jan), and also next weekend (27th Jan), which may impact on your journey to the County Championships.
The road closure is on the Barrowby Road railway bridge, on the A52 westbound (next to Asda). The road is due to close at 6pm on Saturday evening and will remain closed all of Sunday, until 6am Monday morning. Unfortunately this will cause much heavier traffic than normal and is most likely to affect those travelling for the Sunday afternoon sessions.
The best access to the Meres Leisure Centre is from the A1 using either the A52 or ideally the A607 junctions, using Swingbridge Road and then Trent Road. For those who have to come through Grantham, from the east, Bridge End Road, Springfield Road and Trent Road are likely to be the least affected routes. Sankt Augustin Way is best avoided at all costs.
Please allow enough time for your journey.”

Christmas Timetable 2018

We will be operating a limited timetable between Christmas and New Year. Details can be found here.

Happy Christmas to all our swimmers and supporters. christmas-2016

Missing jammers

Please keep your eyes out for a pair of boys Speedo jammers, size 22, black with a strip of Marvel characters down one leg.

They may have been gathered up in error in the changing rooms. If you find them please let the club know and we will reunite them with their owner.

Many thanks.

Change to Seniors/club gym

Please note a training timetable change.

From Wednesday 7th November, seniors and club squad will now have their gym session on a Wednesday at 6.30pm.

Performance will continue to have their gym session on a Friday at 4.15pm.

Welcome to the Club!

Next week we will be welcoming the latest batch of Sharks who have just completed their Stage 6 and 7 courses in Dolphins – well done to you all!

At this standard, you will need to join Boston Amateur Swimming Club. There is a annual membership fee, currently £25, which covers registration and insurance with the national governing body, Swim England.

Sharks meet four times a week in the Geoff Moulder Training Pool:

  • Tuesday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Thursday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Friday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Saturday 8.30am until 9.30am

All of these sessions are available to you, and you don’t need to book in advance.

As well as the joining fee, each squad has a monthly fee. Currently, for Sharks, this is £28. We prefer if this is paid by Standing Order (forms are available from the Coaching Staff), but can be paid by Cash or Cheque – if this is the case please put in a sealed envelope clearly marking the swimmers name.  You can also set up a standing order through online banking if you have that facility, for details of this please email the Treasurer on bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com

For new Sharks, providing you have joined the Club, you can start training with us on Tuesday 23rd October 2018. We look forward to seeing you then!
