BUXTON Swimming Club has celebrated a milestone!

The club is back to its best since returning to Buxton Pool almost a year ago, and last week reached the landmark of 200 members with the arrival of five new swimmers.

Coaches Dave Peet and Michael Glossop, along with a team of volunteers, have worked tirelessly throughout the year to bring in swimmers from Buxton and surrounding areas.

Sam Longden, from Buxton Swimming Club, said: “With an annual summer break coming up, the club now boasts very strong competitive squads along with a healthy learn-to-swim programme, and are well prepared to approach the new season in September.”
