Welcome to this weeks newsletter
Its beginning to warm up and with the warmth comes the opportunity to freeze in the lake! We're putting on a breakfast swim for you all to take advantage of this privilege, see below for detail;

Now that you have all had a chance to dust off your suit, brush up on your open water swimming or just acclimatise, we are going to be holding a group open water swimming session on Sunday 21st May.
A chance to have fun swimming as a group, run by our wonderful club coaches. Now, if that wasn’t enough to wet your appetite (no pun intended) once the swim is over, warm up and tuck into a yummy breakfast lovingly prepared by your social squad, we’ll be serving up sausages buns, pastries, fruit, tea/coffee.
