Have your say

SWIMMERS from a Portsmouth club have shown a politician what they can do.

Portsmouth South MP Flick Drummond visited Portsmouth Northsea Swimming Club for a 6am training session and spent two hours watching the club’s 150 swimmers in the water.

Club chairman Mark Pedwell said: ‘Flick herself knows the passion that swimmers develop and has offered to support the club moving forward by joining us at events and helping to develop our strategic plan.’

Mrs Drummond said: ‘Seeing all of the swimmers, some as young as nine, training at that time of the morning is extremely impressive.’
