This weekend 23 athletes and 11 parents all travelled to Conwy, Wales, for a middle distance residential trip. The girls have had a fantastic weekend of beach training sessions, a Pilates class, lane swimming, celebrating 4 of their birthdays but were unable to beat their parents at beach rounders!
The girls have been a real credit to the club and we also need to say a big thank you to  Brian, Martin and all the parents for making this trip happen.
