A MEMORIAL swim dating back to 1932 is returning this autumn.

The Bridge to Bridge swim, traditionally held from Ferry Bridge down the river to the Trent Bridge, is now hosted in the safer environment of Meadowside Leisure Centre.

Participants on October 5 will swim 60 lengths of the pool, clocking up 1500 metres.

Swimmers compete for the Stanley Curtis cup, which was donated by Tommy Curtis, the manager of Burton's Co-op, in memory of his son Stanley who died in a motorcycle accident in 1932.

Other prizes are awarded to the winners of different age categories and for the six fastest family teams.

Entry forms can be obtained at the Meadowside reception or on the club's website www.burtonasc.co.uk. Closing date for entries is Saturday 20th September 2014.
