Change of Sunday club session times
From 27 April Sunday club session times will be as follows:

  • 1st session (widths) 3.00pm to  3.30pm
  • 2nd session (lengths) 3.30pm to 5.00pm

we have been approached by the council and asked to consider moving our sessions back by 2 hours.. These new times are more in line with the times we originally asked for last year. We have always thought that the later start time would suit more of our members and have such have accepted these times after they were discussed and accepted by our committee.

We apologise for the change but do feel that this is best for the club. Hopefully the change in time will mean that more children, who found the earlier session times difficult will be able to attend.

24 November 2013
As you may already know Knowsley Council has revised the opening hours of its leisure centres.

It looks like Halewood has been the worst hit and this will have an obvious effect on how the club operates.

The club have been running Friday and Sunday sessions since it opened in 1982 and currently has approximately 200 members who swim at different levels and represent the club competitively.

The club has not been formally notified of the decision made by the council and only discovered the news after one of our parents informed us that she had seen it on the council’s website.

The changes take effect from 2 December but following a meeting between the leisure centre management and the club’s chairperson we have been allowed to keep our current session times until Christmas.
What happens after that will become clearer over then next few weeks including the logistics of how we get access/exit the centre from 2/12/13 as the club will be the only group using the centre at those times.

The club’s committee will be meeting to discuss these matters on Tuesday.

In the meantime, we ask that you contact the following people and let them know your concerns as to how this will affect our club, the fact that the club has been in existence for more that 30 years, (both here and previously at the site of the former Bridgefield Comprehensive school on Cartbridge lane), provides a great way for local children/young adults to keep fit and flies in the face of the ‘Olympic Legacy’ and all that was supposed to mean for Great Britain’s hoped for the future.

Andrew McCormack – Knowsley Council Director of Community and Leisure. His email address is Andrew.McCormick@Knowsley.gov.uk
Councillor Eddie Connor - Cabinet Minister on Knowsley Council who chairs the Leisure, Communities and Culture committee. His email address is eddie.connor@knowsley.gov.uk

We have already written to the Secretary of State for sport, (Maria Miller) and have also written to the Liverpool Echo, please feel free to do the same.

Watch our Facebook site (Bridgefield Swimming club) and this website for an online petition and more information as it becomes available.

Membership renewal will take place on 1st, 3rd, 8th and 10th of November for all swimmers of Bridgefield Swimming club.

Membership fees are:

  • £20 for standard club swimmers (category 1), £15 for subsequent children
  • £35 for the higher level open competitive swimmer (category 3), £30 for subsequent children
  • £10 non swimming membership

The fees cover your registration with the ASA (our governing body) and includes insurance cover that all swimmers within private swimming clubs must have.

Regrettably our membership charges have increased slightly this year because of ASA and regional membership increases.

Please note that if membership is not renewed by the end of December the club may choose to exclude the swimmer unless specific circumstances are discussed with the club management.
