The new floating obstacle course drew in hundreds of swimmers last week during half term, not least Rachel Reeves MP and Councillor Ted Hanley, who dropped in for a closer inspection of the pirate ship that had washed up in our nets. They weren’t the first adults to express interest in the pirate ship – our twitter and facebook feeds were full of requests by adults asking to join in and talking ‘pirate’. (Avast ye!)
“This is a great way for young people to enjoy their free time and a fantastic example of people working together to make health-equality a reality’, said Rachel. “The sponsored swimmers and fundraisers who gave their time and commitment to raising the funds for this, should be very proud.” Thanks Rachel – we agree!
And if you’re wondering why Danny, Rachel and Ted are looking up at the ceiling, there’s a photographer from the Yorkshire Evening Post on the balcony calling the shots. Well done Captain Danny & his crew for making it a really memorable half term.
