Otters at Inter County Gala

Congratulations to Molly Monk and Charlie Summer who have been selected to swim for the County in the Regional Inter county Gala to be held at UEA sports park Sunday 7th July

Clay pick up fundraiser

Every year the Otters help to clear up clays following an organised shoot for the charity Break. As a club this is one of our regular fundraisers and a chance for the kids to meet up outside of swimming to laugh, chat and pick up clays – as well as get some much needed non-chlorinated fresh air! This event is taking place 29th June at 12 at Wolterton Estate. If you are able to attend all you need to do is sign up! The sign up sheet is on the board at Dereham Leisure Centre – please sign by the 25th May so we’re able to confirm our participation in supporting this event for Break

A massive thank you also has to go out to our intrepid bunch of parents/volunteers who managed to get the event up and running, our swimmers for persevering and our spectators for their support – Otters helpers, swimmers and parents are the best!

Well done to Head Coach Chris!
