Hathersage Lido

I've been to Hathersage open air swimming pool to film a story on the fact that it's opening all year round for the first time in its 82 year history. I really enjoyed filming this, meeting the swimmers who were very enthusiastic about cold water swimming. I also found looking through photos of the lido from the 1930s particularly enjoyable and decided to start my report with them. The staff their helped too - particularly with filming my piece to camera. I used a second camera - a GoPro - to film this shot from a different angle and I think it really adds to the piece. Obviously I had to have a swim in the pool, despite it being zero degrees outside!

Foodhall

I've been to film a story on a pay as you feel café that's been set up in Sheffield with the aim of tackling hunger, food waste and social isolation. Unsold food that local supermarkets no longer want is passed on to the team at Foodhall where volunteers prepare lunch and people dine communally.
