Whilst I will worry about getting access to the sea later next near, in the mean time I do need access to swimming facilities. The majority of my training is done at the lido in Hampstead, but I decided that whilst back in Worcester I also need to get to a pool.
I approached David Lloyd's gym, showing them the official documentation from Acorns regarding the swim, and inquired about the possibility of being able to use their pool Friday-Sunday until the event. It took a few days, but it transpired that David Lloyd's did not think access to the pool was good enough. They have very kindly granted me full membership as a gesture of support to be me and Acorns.
Naturally I am over the moon at this opportunity. The facilities at the gym are second to none. I met with Adrian, the duty manager at Worcester today, and after signing some paperwork, together with a quick guided tour around the facilities, I went for a swim in their pool. Fantastic.
I have no doubt that this generous offer will help me on my way across to France. Many thanks indeed!
