Our Club summer social and BBQ will take place on Monday 27th August (Bank Holiday) at Curborough Hall Farm, Watery Lane, Lichfield – 4.00pm start.

This is a great chance to get to meet your fellow members outside of the swimming pool and (hopefully) with their clothes on! There will be plenty of food – just bring your own drinks – and games for the children plus plenty of space for them to run around. If the weather is bad there’s plenty of room inside too.

Everyone welcome – bring your friends and family. Free to members and under 16s, £5 for all others.
