New diving blocks for Brean Splash & Burnham Swim Club
2:00pm Thursday 13th February 2014 in Sport
BURNHAM Swimming Club have been making the most of their improved facilities after new starting blocks were installed at Brean Splash, the club’s training base.
The six-lane pool is now fully equipped for galas and training as well as the centre’s learn-to-swim programme.
The new blocks are a joint venture between the club and Brean Splash with some of the money being raised by events undertaken and organised by swimmers, teachers and parents.
Sally Plume, chairman of Burnham-on-Sea Swimming Club, said: “The swimmers were really pleased to have them fitted and to get to use them in training sessions.
“Burnham-on-Sea Swimming Club has seen a steady growth in our numbers since moving last September to Brean and this has been helped by the fact Brean Splash has been extremely welcoming and supportive of our needs.”
