Training over the Christmas period

There will be no Club sessions between in Christmas week or New Year week except the Thursday swim at Abbots Bromley which will be running uninterrupted throughout. So, if you feel a need to get out of the house and do some exercise after the Christmas festivities, join us at Abbots Bromley pool on Thursday 28th December (and Thursday 4th Jan) 7.30pm. If there is any change to this I will email our members and post on our Facebook page as soon as I know.

Happy Christmas!
