Message from Jake & Kate:

Dear all

As club champs is approaching (September) could anyone with trophies/shields from the 2015 club champs return them to Kate and I – emails will also go around too but this is a bit of advance notice…..! We’ll be at the pool Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and would like to have them all back and clogging up our lounge rather than yours by early September! Cheers Jake
