The swim will take place at Holborough Lakes near Snodland on Saturday 6 August and is expected to take around 17 hours.

We wish Paula all the very best of luck , for more details and the oppurtunity to donate to this worth while cause please see the link below:










Dover 50m Pool Petition
Written by Administrator   
Saturday, 16 July 2016 16:03

Dover District Council are currently looking at options for a new sports centre.

Dover Masters Swimmers have started a petition to show how many people would want a 50m pool to be included in the plans.

It would be really great to have a 50m pool in Kent, which would be a lot easier to get to than the Olympic Park or Crystal Palace.

Please follow this link if you'd like to sign the petition.
