Nantwich Seals receives £3,000 grant

Nantwich Seals swimming club has been boosted by a Cheshire East Council grant of £3,000.

The council splashed the cash to help the club buy new equipment and keep fees down.

Council Leader Michael Jones presented a grant cheque to Nantwich Seals during a recent visit to the recently-refurbished Nantwich Swimming Pool.

Cllr Jones said: “It was great to be there with the Nantwich Seals at the start of their gala to present a much-needed grant.

“We are giving this funding to encourage and support these activities for young people, enabling cheaper fees and getting more children swimming.

“It’s a great local story and it was a pleasure to be there with such a great group of young people – plus no one pushed me in, which is always good news for me!

“Seriously though, this was a great event and Cheshire East Council is happy to be of support.”

Nantwich Seals senior swimmer Rebecca Emeny said: “We’re really pleased to be given this grant by the council.

“It means we can use it on new equipment as well as keeping our fees down, which really helps us to attract new swimmers and keep existing swimmers interested and learning new things.”

Fellow senior swimmer John Crawford added: “It feels like the whole club has won a prize.

“I think this is really good for us, it will help with the development of all our swimmers and the club itself – so thank you for giving us the money.”

Dave Thomson, chairman of Nantwich Seals, said: “This will help us to keep our costs down and, fingers crossed, I hope that we will be able to enjoy continuing support in the future.”
