The much anticipated round the pier swim is back for the 48th time on Saturday June 11th at 11.30am. The event which is organised by The Aberavon Green Stars RFC has been running since 1969 and will again start with a jaunt to the sea from the Green Stars clubhouse at Little Warren and vice versa from the sea.
Prizes will be awarded to the victor and runners-up at the Club House afterwards and post-swim festivities will ensue.
Club spokesman Bernard Donovan said: “Regrettably the Clubhouse is due for closure and demolition around this period but plans are underway to develop the bar and clubhouse facilities but within the Little Warren dressing rooms complex rather than the original venue. These will be used for future Round the Pier Swims.”
Further details of the event and registration requirements will be published soon and in the meantime any queries can be referred to the swim organisers Mathew Crowley, James Davies or Bernard Donovan whose mobile number is 07505 141137.
