A date or two for your diaries: the weekend of the 25 and 26 March 2017.
This is when the London Borough of Redbridge SC host their Regional Qualifier meet at Fullwell Cross. The Promoter’s Conditions, Meet Criteria and Qualifying Times are now on the website here.

It’s the time of year when there there’s a big surge in internet shopping.
Did you know that the majority of well known internet retailers are willing to donate a percentage of every purchase made from them to good causes? And the London Borough of Redbridge Swimming Club is one of the beneficiaries of “easyfundraising”.
If you’re planning on using the internet to look for bargains on “Black Friday”, buying presents or doing online grocery shops in December, please remember to visit this link first. Register to support LBRSC and remember to go via easyfundraising.org.uk each time you shop.
There are also Apple and Android easyfundraising apps for those who shop using smartphones and tablets.
Congratulations to Kieran Holdbrook who will be representing Great Britain in next year’s Deaflympics. The event takes place in July in Samsun ,Turkey. Qualifying for the Deaflympics was a particular target for Kieran and he learnt he had been successful at an event at the London Aquatics Centre over the last weekend.
Well done Kieran!
