Fun Gala

May 2012 183
A celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee took place at   Crewe Swimming baths 
on 16th June with a ‘fun gala’ for people with disabilities.
 Those who took part competed in swimming races, had fun with swimming aids and 
gave themselves a challenge  by climbing onto the inflatable structure. 
The participants then attended a disco and buffet at the Purple Onion – 
The Lady Verdin Trust’s Drop-In Centre. The event, organised by Seahorse Swimming Club, was part of the Community Games 
programme that is taking place across the country which is inspired by the London 2012
 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Everyone who took part was presented with a medal by 
The Mayor of Crewe Town Council, Councillor Margaret Martin and a ‘Community Games’ 
certificate by former Seahorse member and Paralympics hopeful,
 Stuart Bloor, who is hoping
 to be part of the London 2012 Games. Seahorse Swimming Club Secretary, Gareth Roberts, 
said “Seeing so many people enjoying themselves whilst 
participating in sport and having a social get together
 during the evening was a wonderful and enjoyable way to 
celebrate the Queens anniversary. The swimming session
 followed by the presentation of medals gave those who
 took part a taste of the London 2012 Games. A great time
 was had by all and our thanks go to everyone who helped make
 the event a success including the staff at Crewe Swimming Baths 
and at the Purple Onion.”
