Shere Swimming Pool is normally open from the first weekend in May until the end of September. The hours of opening are 6am-9pm from May-August, then 6am-7.30pm in September.
Both Single and Family memberships are available at the fees confirmed by the AGM held the previous Autumn. A Family Membership covers one or two adults and all children who are still under 19 at September 1st of the membership year. Single membership covers one adult swimmer or one non-swimming adult accompanying one child under 18 who is using the pool. Any child under 16 who cannot swim one width must be accompanied by an adult IN THE WATER and a FAMILY membership is therefore required. Children cannot have full membership in their own right.
Membership is open to all, however, as the pool is leased from Shere Parish Council, they have determined that priority should be given to the residents of Shere, Peaslake, Holmbury, Gomshall, Abinger and Albury Parish (including Farley Green, Brook, Albury Heath and Little London). The residents of these villages are eligible to apply for "Local Membership" whereas people outside of these areas apply for "Remote Membership".
To ensure that the appropriate priority is given, those eligible for "Local Membership" can apply from January of each year, regardless of whether they are new members or renewing their membership.
From the beginning of April people who have been Remote Members in one or both of the previous two years are also allowed to renew their membership.
From the beginning of April all applications are enrolled as received until the membership quota set by the Parish Council (currently 450) is reached.
Should the membership not be fully subscribed by the end of April, then application forms for New Remote Memberships are made available at the beginning of May.
Membership application forms are made available at the appropriate dates both on the website and in the Co-op in Shere or may be obtained from the Membership Secretary either by e-mail or by post on receipt of a SAE.
Because the pool is unsupervised, we are dependent upon all pool users acting in a responsible manner. For this reason we ask all adults on joining/re-joining to sign that they have understood this and have read and will abide by the club rules.
