SWIMMERS from Burnley Bobcats have enjoyed a weekend of fun and action, thanks to an award of £500 from Burnley Market and 2BR.

Last Friday night saw a two-hour pool training session at St Peter’s, followed by a talk on nutrition for swimmers and parents.

The next day another two-hour pool session was held at the 50m pool at Manchester Aquatics, followed by Laser Quest and Bowling.

The day ended with another pool session, during which a skins event was held, won by Robert Bryce and Hannah Proctor.

On Sunday morning the final two-hour pool session was held before a cooked breakfast was served.

At the end of the camp Elliott Norman was awarded a prize for the best swimmer.

The camp was arranged by volunteer coach Matt Holden, while the swimmers would also like to thank Scott Bryce and Liz Hamer for their help, and Nicola Rowley for her presentation on nutrition.

Christine Fothergill and Jane Moodie also helped with transport.

During the weekend, Patrick Franklin from Atrium Café allowed his premises to be used for catering, food was supplied via Christine Norman and Clayton Park Bakeries and John Beswick and Hanover Dairies, with thanks to them.

Chairman Simon Holding thanked everybody who voted for Bobcats in the Burnley Market/2BR promotion, all volunteer helpers, parents and to Burnley Borough Council for allowing use of St Peters.
