Royston Methodist Church in the Swim - Once again we are delighted that we have been invited to take part in the Rotary Club of Royston SWIMATHON. This will take place at the Leisure Centre, Woodcock Road, Royston on Sunday evening October 14th. We are looking for 6 swimmers to make up a team to swim in relay for 55 minutes. (Note in relay! You are not expected to swim continuously for 55 minutes).  This is a sponsored event from which 50% will go to the Rotary Club of Royston Trust Fund and 50 % will go to U.N.C.L.E.  This will be our 5th year of taking part and has proved to be a very enjoyable way of spending an hour or so on a Sunday evening as well as raising money for a charitable cause at the same time.  Please see Brian Norwood for details.
