There is a chance that we will be hosting a later round . We do need parents help to be a success.

At each round we like our parents and supporters to try and sit together in the stand.

Swimmers as ever should be in full Belper Marlin kit with their BMSC hat. If you are new to the club try to wear something blue until your new kit is ordered.
