Richard and Francis attended the ‘Better Club Games’ on 10th October,
held at the Q.E. Olympic Park in London.
They joined 3 other members of the Cambridge swim team at the Olympic
pool ‘competing’ against Better teams (all over 60s are eligible) from
London and the Southeast.
Other Cambridge members competed in events in the Copper Box – events
such as Table Tennis, Badminton, Cycling and Dominoes.
A great day out with a coach (and T-Shirts) being provided by Better.
Perhaps next year more Friends of Jesus Green Lido will be able to join us?
A few regular swimmers have been talking about starting a Lido Bookclub for the winter months. If you’d be interested in joining us for some gentle book chat over a cuppa or a pint once a month between now and next Spring, email Becky@Beckyallen.org

Alex is planning to meet for an informal swim in the River Ouse and a picnic lunch at Overcote 12 noon on Sunday 1st October. It’s a short 1.5-mile walk from the Swavesey request stop on the guided busway.
From the village of Over, take the lane (Chain Road) signposted from a corner near the church and follow straight to the river, approx. 2 miles. Plenty of parking. Bring hot drinks, picnic and picnic rug, warm jumpers, swimming things. There’s a small concrete slipway good for getting into the water.
