Avril Arundel, daughter of the late Ken and Mabel Martin, officially presented us with the Frisbee target that she has donated to us at 11.30 on Saturday 21st July.
We had actually had the target for some weeks now, but this was the first opportunity that Avril had to present it. We know that the equipment is very popular, particularly with our younger members, and we are in the process of getting more equipment aimed at these youngsters.

Ken and Mabel worked tirelessly at our swimming sessions from the very beginning of our association until Mabel sadly passed away in 2008. Ken continued for some time until his own ill-health stopped him and he passed away in 2016. During the many years that they worked in the pool they taught literally hundreds of disabled children to swim. It is because of their great enthusiasm for helping the children that it was agreed that we should get equipment suitable for children in their name.
