Team bonding day at Liquid Leisure


It was an early start for everyone as they made their way to Liquid Leisure near Windsor and a day of fun on the water. 43 swimmers and parents tackled the wet conditions and the floating obstacle course. Some of the more adventurous (or crazy!) took a ride on the Banana boats and tried to hold on for the bumpy ride. Glad you all had a great day. Many thanks to Lisa Pugh for organising the trip
