Milford Haven Swimming Squad making a splash after donation

19 July 2021

Members of Milford Haven Swimming Squad are ready to make a splash after winning a £1,000 grant from us.

The club is a step closer to buying new diving blocks after bagging the funding from West Wales.

The funding comes as part of Community Champions initiative, which sees 64 good causes across Great Britain awarded up to £1,000 every month.

Neil Arnold, chairperson of the club, said: “We are extremely grateful to us for this generous donation.

“The diving blocks we currently have are outdated and don't have a great deal of life left in them. When our swimmers travel to other clubs to compete, they are often faced not only with a new pool environment they've not seen before, but a style of diving block that is different to that they expect, immediately putting them at a disadvantage.

“This will be a huge boost. It’s great to see Persimmon Homes getting involved with the local community.”

Sharon Bouhali, sales director at West Wales, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Milford Haven Swimming Squad.

“Swimming is a great way to stay active and there is also a fantastic social scene around the sport. I’m sure these new diving blocks will bring a smile to many faces.”

Persimmon Homes is currently building a variety of two, three and four-bedroom homes at its Merlins Lane development in Haverfordwest.
