We recently held our annual Awards Evening. Starting with the usual level of BDCC over-catering (practically a whole pudding per person), we then had an excellent and inspiring talk from Olympic medallist Guin Batten, about taking on challenges – particularly those that people say are impossible.

Afterwards Guin kindly presented the prizes to the various club winners. Whilst some trophies are given to those winning the most points (or having the most swims) in the year, others are nominated by club members and recognise extra effort – both on and off the water.
