Club celebrates successful swim season
THE COVID-19 virus wasn’t going to stop the Biggenden Swimming Club from presenting swimmers with their awards for the 2019-2020 season.
The club’s presentation night planned for Tuesday, March 31 was a no-go after the pool was closed the Friday before due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Club president Kathy Spry said it was lucky the club had completed its championships.
Keeping social distancing in mind, Mrs Spry did a run-around and presented club members with their awards.
The youngsters were also given Easter eggs, which had been purchased for an Easter egg hunt at the club’s break-up.
Mrs Spry said she didn’t know what the future held for the club.
“We will just have to see what the situation is when its swimming season again,” she said.
“It was some of the members’ intentions to travel to Childers during the winter months as their pool is fully heated.”
