Tyldesley SWPC had a record number of people 27 in total entering the Great North Swim at Windermere on 11th June. Some people were competing for the very first time not only in a competition but in an open swimming event. In the Half Mile race the club saw the adult members of  Debbie Hulmes, Karen Price and Lynn Robb and the children who competed with– Leah Hulmes, Lucy Mills, Neil Osgood, Sam Osgood, Jessica Robb; Imogen Roberts and Matthew Roberts compete. In the Mile race – well this was a different thing all together – COMPETITIVE – that’s what comes to mind.  Even the night before the swim they were all “giving some banter” about who was going to finish first from Tyldesley and also finish the swim. First home for Tyldesley was Adam Toone in 23.13, followed by Leanne Stafford (who finished 1st female in her age group) and the rest of the swimmers who completed the course were Maxine Grundy, Samantha Grundy, Natasha Grundy, Nicola Holt, Lee Toone, Louise Toone, Andrea Roberts, Neil Roberts, Sam Mills, Tom Pridding, Ant McGuiness, Sam Cornish-Evans, Jill Kaufman
