*CLARIFICATION OF NEW SUNDAY SWIM TIMES*

Dear Members, please find below important information for those that swim on Sundays......


As you may or may not have known TCSC have been looking to gain extra water time for the swimmers. Sunday is one such session where we have been able to gain a small amount of extra time. As such the sessions will be changing as follows. No one will loose any water time here they will only gain.

There has been some confusion while we have been sorting behind the scenes with Truro LC but can now confirm.

If you trained on Sundays before the break the changes are as follows:

Sunday 4pm - 5pm lanes 4-6 training with Jeremy your training time remains 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Sunday 4pm - 5pm lanes 1-3 training with Emily your training time is now 4:00pm - 5.30pm
Sunday 5pm -7pm lanes 1-3 training with Emily your training time remains at 5.00pm - 7:00pm
Sunday 5pm - 7pm lanes 4-6 training with Dave your training time is now 5.30pm - 7.30pm

If you have any queries about this change and/or what session your child should be in please seek Head Coach Emily poolside or via email to emilydart06@yahoo.co.uk

*Pre-war Truro City swimming Club*

The club has kindly received some old snaps from back in the day.

These pictures where taken at Malpas in 1939; where the club used to train in the open water prior to a swimming pool being built in the city. Some of the youngsters in the front row could still be alive and might be parents of previous club members and/or grandparents of some current members?

This shows the long history of the club and why still some of the current club trophies have dates pre-war.

Can anybody out there put some names to faces? or name the venue or help with any history of this great club.
