Our Guernsey offices started a lunchtime swim club in July 2020 and it’s still going strong.
Club members take an hour each week to head down to one of their local bays to enjoy a swim together at lunchtime. It's a great way to socialise with colleagues and enjoy their beautiful surroundings.
Mandy Holloway, Executive Assistant commented: “As our office is based in St Martin’s, it gives us lots of bays to choose from, all within about five minutes driving distance. We also drive down to St Peter Port to swim at La Vallette Bathing Pools as that enables our colleagues at Cambridge House to join us too. These are tidal, saltwater pools that give us options on swimming safely when the weather isn’t suitable for any of the other bays we visit. We do get cold, especially in January when the sea temperature drops to around 7-8 degrees centigrade! In the Summer months, we can swim daily if the weather permits.”
Here are some of their recent locations: Havelet; Moulin Huet; Petit Bot; Bathing Pools.
