Created and maintained by a resident of Hatchmere, the idea of this website is not new. We want to encourage visitors to Hatchmere and make sure the mere is enjoyed throughout the year. Regular use of the mere will ensure that the right to swim in Hatchmere is never taken away or lost due to apathy.
Originally this website was created and maintained by Yacov Lev. A long time visitor and swimmer in Hatchmere, Yacov was one of the Friends of Hatchmere and took a lead role in campaigning for continued access for members of the public to be able to swim in Hatchmere lake. Swimmers of Hatchmere owe a debt of gratitude to the original Friends of Hatchmere group without which you would not enjoy the freedom to swim in our lovely mere.
I am a current resident of Hatchmere and created this website in my own time, it is not the work of a website creation company; the hosting for Hatchmere.com is paid for out of my own pocket. Please support the cost of this website using the affiliate Amazon links/adverts around the website if you need to purchase any swimming related or other items from Amazon.
