CHESC Wednesday 10th March Virtual Meet up

Next weekend would have been Gerry’s 95th Birthday (if we’ve done our maths right!) So to mark the occasion, on Wednesday during our usual 7:30pm “training session” chat we will be raising a glass of Merlot, Whiskey & Dry Ginger, Guinness or anything else you’d prefer in honour of the great man.

We’d also like to get as many of you that don’t normally join in to “come to the party” and reminisce the old times....

Possible Pool re-opening

Unfortunately due to the latest COVID situation, the school has informed us that there are now no plans to resume external lettings (pool hire) until at least 4th January 2021. So no training at CH Pool at least until then.

In "better" news, Swim England have frozen their membership rates for 2021.... Whoopee!

Possible Pool re-opening

It looks like we could be back in the pool the first week in November.

The school has indicated that subject to no more COVID-19 issues after the school goes back that they plan to open for outside lettings after 1/2 term. Fingers-crossed!

Watch this space....

Weekend in Shrewsbury Friday 23rd-25th October

As the National Masters in Sheffield in October has long been cancelled we will miss our well earned weekend away. So we thought we might have the weekend away anyway....!

So a number of us have booked The Premier Inn, Shrewsbury (it’s closer!) for the same weekend (23rd-25th October) so we can do the usual JDW on Friday, meal on Saturday but without the pressure of having to do the swimming

If you’d like to join us for the cultural experience (piss-up!) you’d be very welcome (all within easy walk of the train station with direct trains from B’ham) Premier Inn currently available for £64 for the two nights!
