Wragby Round-up

Wragby & District Swimming Club - Following the departure of Martyn Hardy to pastures new, Wragby & District Swimming Pool Committee are pleased to announce the arrival of two new members of staff who started on Monday May 13.

Rob, who may be recognised by many pool users as he used to cover when Martyn was away, will take over the role of lifeguard.

Kat will be taking on the position of tutor for the Aquatic School that is currently being run.

She will bring a wealth of experience which will benefit those that are learning to swim.

Both Rob and Kat are very pro-active and enthusiastic about the pool and their presence will enable the club to re-vamp both the pool and lessons to meet the needs of users.
