Open Water Swimming
Open Water Swimming is POSTPONED due to cold water temperatures of 4oC. We will review the temperatures and review for May (note added 04/04/418).
Leave the gym behind and get moving in the great outdoors.

Don’t forget Twilight Club, our regular Wednesday evening drop-in session. From 6-8pm, simply turn up, pay at the desk, then take out any of our hire boats – including kayaks, canoes, pedalos, stand up paddleboards and sailing dinghies—for just £12. Don’t forget food for the BBQ!
