It was another super day for City of Cambridge swimmers at the Cambridge Building Society sponsored July Open Meet. The event also saw Graham Jefferies and Trevor Ludman receive on behalf of the club, the Swim21 national accreditation from the Mayor of Cambridge, Russ McPherson and ASA representative Kevin Wray. Swim 21 Accreditation is a 'Quality mark'. It recognizes nationally and regionally the clubs that are committed to providing safe, effective and quality services for the benefit of their members. The Club is very proud to have gained the Swim 21 accreditation, which has taken a lot of work by the volunteer committee.
