Edlington’s First Swimming Gala

Edlington’s first swimming gala

Swimmers/Parents, we wanted to share an old photograph of some of the swimmers that took part in Edlington’s very first gala. The photo has been provided by a gentleman called Keith Osborne who will be travelling across from France to attend our club presentation night. This year it will be on Saturday, December 10th at the Edlington Miners Welfare, Edlington Lane. We usually aim to  start at about 7.30pm.

Keith still has family living in Edlington and has kindly offered to sponsor our championship trophies. We have recently heard from Frank Dack who is on the far right of the picture. Frank and his wife are also attending.

Keith and Frank are two of the founder members of our swimming club, which they founded in 1971. We have a lot to thank them for.
