Members of Seahorse Swimming Club, who are based at the Lifestyle Centre in Crewe, got involved with The Great Get Together on Sunday 18th June 2017, with a morning walk followed with a picnic. The walk was from Queen's Park to Nantwich (along the Greenway) and then back to the park for the picnic. Some took part in a less energetic walk around the park.
Neighbourhood celebrations were taking place throughout the UK during the weekend to bring communities closer together. This was the inspiration of Jo Cox, who was tragically killed on 16th June last year.
"The day was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed the social aspect of the event and participating in exercise. Those who got involved stated how they enjoyed the challenge of the walk. Others loved the fun of playing racket games in the park and entertaining each other, while some were pleased to spend time in the lovely surroundings of Queen's Park. The weather was glorious and it was pleasing to see the refreshments going down so well by everyone." - Gareth Roberts (Seahorse Secretary).
