Almost every swimmer over the last two weeks have taken part in the sponsor swim to raise money for swimmers to attend the British Nationals in Glasgow during Easter.
Lewis Edwards and Josh Hodgson both swam over the weekend, and both had personal best times in their swims, Lewis Edwards reaching the finals in his classification for the 100 Free and 200 IM.
Both swimmers gave 100% and produced great times, CCSS are proud of your achievements – the final total is yet to be counted, we will update you soon – well done everyone, great team effort.
Caerphilly County Swim Squad have been given time at Ystrad Mynach Tesco, to enable us to raise funds through bag packing.
We have kindly been given Saturday 10th May – and will all assemble for 10.00 am in Ystrad Mynach Tesco – finish no later that 4 pm
As you all know it is very difficult to get bag packing dates in any superstores at the moment, so let’s not pass this great opportunity by and ensure all swimmers and parents are there to help raise as much as we can – we are looking to update our timing equipment to enable us to run our own gala’s, so in the words of the store “every little helps”
All swimmers are to wear their Caerphilly Tee shirts – there will be a list in Caerphilly, please make sure you put your name down.
