Octopus League Galas 2014
A mention has to go out to all our Octopus Gala swimmers this year. Well done to all our swimmers and especially to those that took part in their first ever swimming competition. To mark their achievement, awards were presented to each swimmer in recognition of their support, participation and commitment to the Club and more importantly giving our swimmers the opportunity to gain competitive experience and confidence as well as having fun. Overall we finished 7th this year and hope to build on our success next year.
