Eileen Casey, Gala Secretary, writes…

Swimmers have attended 12 Galas this year; from Inter-club to Regional and National. Gala fees are going up every year, but the club will still pay the first £5 of each gala. And any extra fees to be paid by the swimmer. There have been some great swims this year and lots of Personal Best times as well as Cups and Shields won at Gala’s, so well done to all our swimmers for a great year.
