Apologies but the 3rd leg of the NEIS Series to be held at Alnwick on Sunday 9th November has had to be cancelled.
We have arranged a fun event at Prudhoe Waterworld on Saturday 26th October 4.15-6.00pm. Please see the attached notice.If you wish to attend, please sign-up on the Club noticeboard. All members can bring a sibling or friend. Please mark “+1″ against your name if you will bring a friend.Anyone under 8 years old must be accompanied in the water by an adult (16+ yrs).In the unlikely event that we are over-subscribed, members will take precedent over non-members. We will know this before the date. More likely is there will be space for parents and/or additional friends/siblings.Parents could bring their costumes and join in the fun if their is space. Alternatively, there is a coffee bar in the spectator area of the pool which is open until 5pm.
