We would like to extend our thanks to Kat Brace who left ESC at the end of 2017 after being with us for many years, as a swimmer, a coach and a mentor to swimmers. Whilst we will see her around on the poolside helping, she is off to concentrate on her teaching career and we all wish her the very best, we'll miss you. The swimmers said a fantastic farewell to her at the Christmas Fun Gala which ended up in two lengths of the pool, clothed of course, but she must have seen that coming as she had her swimming costume on underneath her coaching gear, sneaky!
