GLOUCESTER Thunderbolts Swimming Club will celebrate half a century with a special fun day and dinner on November 9.
The day will also incorporate the Rotary Relay which will be held from noon at the Gloucester Pool.
Tickets are now on sale at the pool for the event with a sit-down dinner to be held at the Gloucester Soldiers Club on Saturday evening.
The event will recognise past achievements and celebrate the contribution of members throughout the past five decades.
“Really it’s an event for the whole community,” club member Tony Kingston said.
“One of those that has already confirmed he will be attending is Keith Watt.
“Keith was a founding committee member. He now lives on the coast but his son still lives locally and also had a lot to do with the club and the pool.”
The day will be a family-friendly event with a barbecue to be supplied by the Rotary Club.
Children’s games and activities will be held in the pool at the conclusion of the relay.
Saturday night’s gala dinner will include entertainment by the Bowden Brothers.
