Good News - Are PLA warming to the idea of our challenge - By Lorraine Rate

Following the success of our Xmas Eve charity dip, the Echo are keen to learn more about The Chalkwell Redcaps Open Water Swimming Club.  Today was a huge lift for us as we have met with some opposition from the PLA as regards the safety of our swim.

We of course, are taking this on board and currently seeking the assistance of local yacht clubs and the RNLI before we attempt further negotions with The PLA.

However, today, the following article printed in the Echo has come as a huge welcome.  As you will see from the  PLA spokesman, they do now seem to realise that this team of swimmers are definately going ahead with this and hopefully, will welcome our forthcoming negotions.
