It's Good to Talk

We miss swimming! – And it’s not just the feel of the water and that sense of freedom it gives you. Without swimming, we are a community of swimmers without a place to meet up, chat, have a laugh and do what we love. That said, we still remain a ‘community’. We are here for each other and are thinking of each other. 

The difficulties this lockdown brings can vary for everyone. For some it’s trying to balance work with child-minding and rarely having time for oneself. For others, who maybe live by themselves, the lockdown means complete self-isolation. In the past, swimming has been there to help us combat loneliness or isolation, it has given us an outlet, a sense of purpose, or encouraged a drive within us to keep going, keep getting better. 

That’s why we want to say that the club is still here. If you need a helping hand or a listening ear, please drop our Facebook page a direct message, email or maybe just pick up the phone and just call someone you miss. Just because we can’t see each other doesn’t mean we are not here. And ‘swimming’ will be there again someday soon. In the meantime we’re still here. Talk to us.
