Dear all. Many of you will now be aware that we have been lobbying Bristol City Council to try to secure free pool time for our UBSC swimmers equivalent to the free pool time (18 hours) the council provides for the city's other performance pathway squad, City of Bristol. Harsha Gunawardena (Luca's dad) has set up an online petition to increase the pressure on the council for parity. We'd be so grateful if you could take five minutes to read the summary at the top of the petition (link below) and, if you agree that the present system is unfair, to please sign. UBSC provides high-level training for BHSC's swimmers. It is an essential outlet for them to reach their swimming potential. Please catch a committee member or coach at training if you'd like any more information and, in the meantime, we hope we can count on your support. Thank you so much.
Please not that the petition does contain one error - *City of Bristol Performance Pathway (network clubs Bristol Central, Bishopston "- should read Bishopsworth not Bishopston.
