New Bylaws for Bathing at Sheerness
« Reply #1 on: June 14, 2018, 18:04:48 »
New bylaws issued by Sheerness Council permit mixed bathing on the foreshore only before 8 in the morning and after 10 at night.
For day bathing two sections of the promenade - about a mile apart - have been set aside for men and women.
On Sundays foreshore bathing is allowed only before 8 a.m. other than in the council's bathing station. Bathers must wear "a costume or covering extending from the shoulders" wherever they bathe.
