[ Noticeboard: Waterloo Swimming Club ]

Fancy a dip?

Want to learn to swim?

Want your kids to learn to swim?

Want to be a lifeguard and become part of Waterloo's own
Baywatch?

Local resident Abigail Tripp wants to know if you are
interested in joining Waterloo Swimming Club. With Coin
Street Community Builders planning to build a swimming pool
in Doon Street, she thought it would be a great idea to get
ready for the new pool by starting a swimming club NOW! It's
early days so for now she is inviting people who live, work
or play in Waterloo to register their interest. Please send
your contact details (name, address, email and phone number)
and answers to the above questions to:

abs@tripp.fslife.co.uk or Abigail Tripp c/o Family Links, 99
Upper Ground, LONDON, SE1 9PP or text 0779 247 1115.
