On Sunday our younger swimmers attended the Newham Winter Meet en masse. For some, it was their first experience of an external competition - the whole group's enthusiasm was infectious all day.

Swimming their hearts out prevailed on October the 12th when the fantastic team finished a close 2nd to Ipswich - the closest we've ever been points wise to such a dominant team.

All three objectives during this first round were achieved, especially the latter where even the parents screaming from the balcony for...
