There is no training at Ridings 31st Jan diue to the Gloucester Blocks.

No Training at Horfield on Wednesday due to a Percy Smith Gala. Squad 2 trining at Filton is still on.

The Competition Calendar for 2016 is now on the website.

Membership forms are being collected this week and next at all swimming sessions. Please print and complete the form and give it to a committee member before the 17th January together with a cheque/cash for your membership. You must also have set up a standing order for monthly training fees and include the reference on the form. Full details may be found here.

As the Gloucester Blocks are running on Sunday 8th Feb, 8th March and 22nd March there will be no swimming at The Ridings on these dates as many swimmers will be competin and coaches will be supporting. Swimming at Filton will carry on as normal.

Anyone fancy swimming 5km for charity? It's OK - you can enter as a team. The Swimathon is running the weekend of 17th - 19th April and swimmers will have to raise sponsorship money - which goes to Marie Curie Cancer Care. Details are at As we have a couple of galas on the 18th it looks like Sunday the 19th would be the day to enter a team or two. Pools with swims on the 19th include South Bristol, Backwell and Keynsham so we have a bit of a choice. I will put a sign-up sheet on the notice board or email if you are interested and we will organise something.

The membership form for 2015 is availble here. Please print a copy, complete and return to Gerald.

Bristol North kicked-off this season's Cotswold League with a victory on Saturday at Horfield. An excellent performance by the U11, U13, U15 and open swimmers ensured an exciting win over Cheddar by just 2 points, with other good performances by the Wells and Bridgewater teams.

Thanks to Helen and John for managing the team, and all the other volunteers for hosting the event.

The next round is on Saturday 28th March.
