Read the Crusader League Gala and Wrexham Gala reports here

Cath Ankers Gala Wrexham Saturday 8th June
This gala is run very much the same as this Sunday’s at Wrexham – there are no minimum entry times, but swimmers will be disqualified for going too fast! It is an excellent first gala for young swimmers.
If anybody is interested in entering (it will be 50’s and 100’s of most strokes) would they let Robyn know ASAP – when they send out the entry details it fills up very quickly, so it is best to be organised. Please let Robyn know if you are interested by April 1st as there may be timing to be done.
Please speak to Robyn if you have any queries.
