With huge thanks to Helen and Kerry for all their help poolside over the weekend! Here’s Kerry’s fab feedback:

“ALL the kids without exception were brilliant all weekend, the best I have seen them for a long time. Everyone came to pre-water and joined in well, they cheered and supported each other well, they listened to me when it was time to go to whipping and joined in with fun and banter throughout the weekend. We were all buzzing on the team’s pb rate throughout both days – I am so proud of them all.”
