We will hold a sponsored swim at Honiton swimming pool on Sunday 13 June between 6 – 7 pm. All ages welcome. The aim is to swim as many lengths as possible within 20 minutes to raise money for Honiton Swimming Club. You can have yourself sponsored per swim, or per length swum! Please contact Tina Alam for more info, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a sponsorship form.
Due to Bank Holiday weekend there is no swimming tonight.
Fancy a change from the pool and try something different?

This years Honiton Swimming Club Easter Egg Hunt was held at Martin and Liz Bennets farm in Broadhembury.
Although the weather had been appalling on the lead up to the event, the actual day was bathed in glorious sunshine with the added bonus of thick mud underfoot.
With over 6 acres of land to hide the clues to the egg hunt, we expected our intrepid egg hunters to be out for some time.
40 Egg hunters aged from 6yrs – 45yrs trudged off into the distance to find the hidden egg clues. First back were Lucy and Janet in a record breaking time. I am sure they has a quad bike hidden away to get them around.
With all safely back in just over an hour and a half we all tucked into some glorious burgers supplied by Complete Meats of Honiton.
After being refreshed and saying hello to the Bennetts newly born calfs (oh and not forgetting Red the dog), the Egg Huntwers were presented with their well derserved easter eggs donated by Tescos of Honiton.
The winner of the prize draw egg was lucky Christian Welford.
A very big thank you goes out to Lizzy and Martin Bennet for letting Honiton Swimming Club use their land and facilities to make for a great team building day out.
Also a big thank you to all the parents and children who attended, especially those who organised and ran the event and they were:
