Unfortunately, Covid-19 has disrupted our SO/Special Abilities training session. HoddSC is working closely with the Borough of Broxbourne and SOEH to be able to offer a swimming session. When there is a session available we will communicate this through our social media channels: Facebook "Special Olympics East Herts" please follow us.
