MVH Members leap into the Thames!

At the end of July, two intrepid (quite silly) club members decided it was a good idea to swim 2.25 miles down the River Thames between Hampton Court Bridge and Kingston Bridge. It was just as well they swam the race before reading a government body’s report into last year’s race when one in three of  the participants became ill!!

I am please to say that both survived and obviously have a cast iron constitution as they suffered no ill effects. The share price in a certain carbonated beverage certainly went up after the swim.
