Garstang Amateur Swimming Club (Garstang Gators) have thanked Garstang and District Lions Club for presenting them with £200.

The cheque – to be used to hire a pool for a friendly gala between the Gators and other local swimming clubs – was presented by Peter Ryder, President of Garstang and District Lions to Garstang Gators’ head coach Susan Booth and team captains Sam Gelder and Abbie Hewitt.

Garstang Gators offer affordable swimming lessons to pre-school children and older children. Gators also caters for older members with coaching sessions for competitive swimming.

The club will soon be introducing a water polo session, and have secured Olympic player, Glen Robinson, as coach for some of these sessions.

Swimming training is split between the pools at Garstang and Lancaster University. The club also offers land training sessions on Saturdays to build up stamina.

Swimming sessions are on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
