5000 metres!
Well done to everyone who took part in our latest Distance Badge session on 4th December.

A special mention goes to Hannah Walker, 13, who completed an amazing 5k (250 lengths of the pool).  It took Hannah 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete the distance which had not been attempted in recent years.  Afterwards her proud mother, Gergana, said that Hannah was 'pleased but tired' to have completed the distance.

A big thanks goes to swim teacher Wendy Conibear for supervising and observing everyone who took part in the session.
