On Tuesday 8th February Ceredigion Actif organised their biggest disability swimming gala yet at Plascrug leisure centre for Ceredigion Primary and Secondary Schools. Over 90 competitors took part in 39 races.
Each competitor received a certificate and medal presented by Arwyn Thomas, deputy director of Ceredigion County Council Education and Community Services. Mr Thomas said "Disability Sport Wales events grow each year, the talent on the day was superb, all the competitors were thoroughly enjoying themselves and it was great to see the support shown from schools, staff, parents and volunteers on the day".
Swim Wales were present on the day to identify talent and qualifying times to represent Ceredigion at the regional disability swimming gala in Swansea on the 26th March 2011.
The Council’s Disability Sport Development Officer Gemma Cutter who organised the event said ‘the enthusiasm and confidence of the children on the day was incredible, thank you to the schools that entered. A special thank you to Disability Sport Wales volunteers, swimming officials from Aberaeron Swimming Club, and staff from Aberaeron Swimming Pool and Plascrug Leisure Centre for their support and help on the day, it would not be possible otherwise".
