Swimming Club Presentation Night: Saturday 25 February

Our annual Club Championships presentation night will be held on the evening of Saturday 25th February at Throgmorton Hall, Dunkeswell.  We shall post out more details shortly, but in the meantime please mark this in your calendars.

This is our main social family event of the year where we have the opportunity to recognise those who have achieved awards in the club championships, and also other achievements throughout the year.

We intend to hold a raffle on the evening, so if you have any items you would like to donate, please could you bring them along to the pool between now and then.

Half-term break: Swimming continues throughout

Unlike previous half-term breaks we will continue with swimming sessions throughout (usual days & times). Please make every effort to attend. If for any reason you can’t make your usual day(s) just remember, you can still come on another day to make up for it. The new monthly payments by direct debit take half-term swimming sessions into account, so don’t forget to claim all your sessions!
