Whilst we are looking to maintain the same annual membership charges for 2018, due to circumstances beyond our Club control, we will have to raise the Swim fees from £3 per session to £3.50, and the Land Training fees from £2 per session to £2.50. We are sorry for having to impose this first increase since 2016.

Swimming Club 50th birthday!

July 2018 marks 50 golden years of our swimming club and it would be a crying shame not to celebrate this fantastic milestone!! If you can think of any events we can hold to mark this momentous occasion, could you please reply on here through the contacts page or speak to a committee member at any club night, preferably before the beginning of Sept 2017. All ideas will be run by the EPASC committee. Anyone who knows ex members / swimmers, please pass this message on as I’m sure they would be interested. Thanks.
