Northfield Lifesaving Club & Venue

As you are aware, Northfield Swimming Pool has been taken over by a private company, and will be closing, within the next six months. At the current time we do not know any dates, as it is difficult to obtain any information from Birmingham City Council.

I am pleased to say that last week, Blue Coat Private School, Harborne (they have extremely good facilities) made contact with Jonathan Stanton and confirmed that they could accommodate us on our normal Wednesday evenings (at the same time). We appreciate that this may be a little further afield for people to travel but the good news is, that we can still continue as a Club.

To date the response from all parents and carers has been most positive, and we are looking forward to securing the new venue

I have attached the letter handed to all present at club on 3 June 2015, please download and confirm if you will be able to attend the new venue
