July 20th - Last Session at Stonar

Widths and TAGS at Stonar will resume after the summer break on August 31st.

  

This Week at the Springfield

The Wednesday and Saturday sessions will be run on July 2nd and 5th at the Springfield Centre. 

Mastering the Force to relay the news

The chance to win national masters medals arose again this weekend and so Nikki and Stuart paid the £6.40 to cross the bridge and compete at the Welsh National pool in Swansea. The venue seemed more popular than last year and the competition was much tougher. Our swimmers teamed up with Rebecca Squire and Keith Withers from Bradford on Avon (under the West Wilts Force 5 banner) with the intention of winning relay medals.

 

Replacement Pool Swimming Sessions Now Starting

We have now completed the last Sunday/Monday sessions at the Springfield Centre until the renovations are finished (hopefully not too long). The full schedule and description of the sessions and times are detailed here. Things to note:

- Wednesday evening and Saturday morning training will continue at the Springfield Centre until July 5th owing to a slight delay in the start of the renovation works. The rest of the sessions will commence as planned from Friday 13th June at the alternative pools.

- It is not feasible to have a desk rota and full register at Calne, Chippenham and Stonar. The teaching team will make a list of all the swimmers (for safety purposes) and mark off swim cards.

- New swim cards can still be purchased from Shelley, Henrietta and Fiona but it is not possible to hand in cheques/orders at the desk (as it will not be there!). If you cannot locate someone selling cards then please email richard.moore@zen.co.uk and I can post new cards out as required.

- Communications will be via this website and email. If you or someone you know has not been receiving emails recently then please send your address and details to richard.moore@zen.co.uk

Finally, if you have any questions, queries or requests then please let us know (you should know the email by now). We will do all we can to enable the swimmers to keep swimming.

Many thanks,

Richard Moore - Secretary
