CANCELLED HWSC regret to inform you that we have had to cancel our annual Swim Out of Your Skin Meet for 2018. This decision has not been taken lightly and the circumstances are beyond the swimming club’s control. The swimming pool spectator area and some of the changing rooms are in the process of being refurbished. Due to unforeseen sub contractor and product delays the work will not be completed in time for the meet. There were over 250 swimmers who attending the meet and along with the seating area, some of the poolside is blocked off including a fire exit. This would mean dangerous overcrowding around the pool with the number of swimmers, coaches and officials. Extensive risk assessments have been undertaken by both the pool operator and our internal officer and we have reached the conclusion that it is not possible to safely to run a swim meet of this size with the level of work in it’s current state of completion.
