** A fabulous weekend at the May meet, thanks to all that attended and helped out, we hope swimmers enjoyed their weekend. We look forward to you joining us next year **

Bristol Junior Novice Gala

May I say well done to all those swimmers who took part in the gala at Keynsham on Sunday. I know for many of you it was your first experience of a gala with swimmers from other clubs and I know many of you were very nervous at the start. I'm sure that by the end of the afternoon all those nerves had been overcome and all the swimmers thoroughly enjoyed themselves. 

The following swimmers came first in their individual races : Melissa Dale, Millie Burton, Billy Boulton, Josh Holloway and Max Ellis.  Two of the boys relay teams also came first : Jonathan Newman, Finnian Lingham, Reuben Williamson & Cody Farrell in the 9/U freestyle relay and Jack Baker, Ben Holloway, Oliver Thornell and Max Ellis in the 8/U medley relay. 

All of the swimmers did really well and many showed real determination particularly Abigail Butters, Keeley Price, Brandon Creed & Jack Boulton - these were just a few that I noticed - we have many more with bags of talent & potential. Whilst there were no official timings, Lisa and Andrea did time the individual races which have now been put onto the database - so you can check your new PBs. 

Finally may I say a BIG THANK YOU to Holly Payne and Neil Holloway for organising the team, to Jon Morley for Officiating and to Viv Benson, Charlotte Sayer, Jess Heron, Lisa Creed and Andrea Burney for helping to organise all the swimmers (not an easy task) and a special big thank you to those who were back on poolside at Yate a few hours later coaching.
