It's been a long time coming but prizes were awarded on Monday night for greatest fund raising effort during the Christmas Swimathon. Close to £500 was raised following a fantastic fund raising effort which all participants should be proud of. Hopefully they should reap the rewards as 4 new nipper boards (incl 2 step up 8'6" boards) are on the way.
On another note, all members should be commended on their behaviour on Monday too as nipper/youth training was interrupted first by a lost child and a search effort followed by a weever sting involving another beach user. The older youngsters showed a high level of maturity in dealing with the situation while the nippers showed great patience as they waited on the beach. We can confirm that the missing child was found alive and well but he learnt his lesson not to wander off.
