One of our parents commented, ‘Fantastic team atmosphere at Stoke this weekend!! Well done to Emma Elwell, Dylan Smith and Donna Stevens. Was fabulous to see all the swimmers of all ages supporting each other - helping with the warm ups, good luck hugs in the marshalling line ups and the loudest support poolside during each others races! I’m sure that all helped produce some great swims!! Very proud to be a Forester!
