About us


In late 2015, a band of volunteers, primarily parents, got together and set up a fundraising group with the following mission:

'To raise funds to promote the development of swimming at the Black Lion Swimming club for its members through fun and profitable activities.'


We hold various events and activities throughout the year, look out for upcoming events on our social media and posters at our various locations.
