Youngsters have a splashing time at Crewe’s Swimming Gala

Primary School Gala 2011 086

A hundred young swimmers from schools across Cheshire East took part in the annual Crewe Primary Schools Swimming Gala last week (March 29).

Ten schools battled it out inside Crewe Pool before hundreds of cheering parents but there could be only one winner - Leighton Primary School, who was also last year’s joint winner. The runner-up was Saint Mary’s.

Mayor of Cheshire East Councillor Gordon Baxendale said: “It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with lots of excitement, from the cheering parents on the balcony to the youngsters in the pool who were having a great deal of fun.

“The competition has become a hugely successful event each year and we are keen to keep that going not just because swimming is a healthy activity for the children but also because it brings the parents together and strengthens community ties.

“Thanks to all of those who made the day possible, including School Sports Partnership and Crewe Flyers as well as the teachers, youngsters and their parents.”

The schools that took part in the day were: Hungerford, Wistaston Green, Wimboldsley, Brierley, Monks Coppenhall, Vine Tree, Gainsborough and Eddleston, Leighton and St Mary’s.

All of the swimmers were presented with a medal and a certificate and the winners also received a trophy and a special prize.
