Swimming sessions resume today!

Hi all, just a reminder that swimming resumes this week, with the usual sessions on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

If you are new and interested in joining the club, why don’t you stop by at Honiton Swimming Pool on Friday 7pm or Sunday 5pm? Jerry our headcoach will then be able to allocate you to the right group and, if you like, you can start swimming straight away.

Winding down for the Summer holidays

This week’s sessions will be the last until September. To celebrate the summer holidays, the last session on Sunday will be a FUN HOUR at 6-7pm. Note there will therefore be NO session at 5-6pm on this Sunday.

We will resume sessions again on Thursday 9 September. Happy Holidays!

Over £600 raised in our sponsored swim!

Thanks to all swimmers who took part in our sponsored swim on 13 June, covering as many lengths as possible in 20 minutes. The total effort has raised well over £600 for our club!!

A special mention goes to Nick Williamson who single-handedly raised over £300, and to Georgie Bird who swam on her own time on a Saturday as she couldn’t make it on the night.

Thanks & well done to everyone who took part!

Join our sponsored swim on Sunday 13 June!

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 honitonswim@yahoo.co.uk for a sponsorship form.
