A BIG Thank you

The Trustees and Coaches would like to thank everyone for their involvement in the Club Champs at the weekend. Without the support of numerous officials and volunteers the weekend wouldn’t have been possible. The swimmers were fantastic over the weekend and helped to make our Champs a great success. We would like to thank our main sponsor Venture 4x4 in supporting this event as well as our upcoming Awards party and BBQ. We look forward to welcoming as many swimmers/parents/ guardians/ grandparents as possible to this.
