Bank Holiday Monday
The pool will be closed on Monday due to the Bank Holiday so there will be no training sessions that day.
Also, there will be no land training on Tuesday 3rd May as the coach is not available.
However, there has been a lot of positive feedback about these sessions, so providing we can get agreement with the Leisure Centre we will continue these sessions as a permanent part of the program. As soon as the details are confirmed we will let you know.
