16th June 2011 - Cancellation of the Inter-counties scheduled Fri 24th June
- It is with regret that we had to announce that the Inter-counties gala scheduled for
the 24th June (years 5 to 8) had to be cancelled. This was due to the other 2 counties Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire being unable to finalise their teams in time.
- Gill Mackenzie, President of the Hert SSA, commented that it was the "upmost reget that it had to be cancelled", and she added that "it was a situation outside of the control of Hertfordshire". She also thanked everyone (parents and swimmers) for the "ongoing support for Hertforshire schools swimming".
