Arrival of the new diving blocks

Website Stowswim

On Friday we finally launched our new diving blocks. Thanks to the kind and generous donations to our Crowdfunder campaign.

The first swimmers Pete, Jude, Heath, Amelie, Harriet and Teilo took to the new diving blocks. Bobbie Wilson, our long standing Club President sounded the start signal. The rest of the club cheered them along as they took the honour of the first dive into the pool.

It was then the turn of our ‘bombers’ Lizzie and Vaughn who after a slight change of plan, also dived in to the pool. After patiently waiting, it was at last time for of the rest of the swimmers to familiarise themselves with the blocks, followed by some fun relay races. Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to many more dives to come.

The new diving blocks were only made possible by the kind and generous donations by past and present members, many parents, grandparents, friends and Sport Englands £4£ matching grant.

Thank you to the many local businesses who donated ‘rewards’ to the Crowdfunding campaign, most without any direct connection to the swimming club including:
