As the excellent summer weather is now behind us our open Water swimming has now finished for the season. It will return in the new year when the weather gets better Thanks to everyone who has supported the swiming this year and a massive thank you to everyone who has helped out, without our helpers we wouldn’t have a session at all.
Sorry but having to cancel tonight’s swim session due to the weather. We are not able run the session with the safety crew. Hope you all understand. Fingers crossed we get some sun this year. Mark
