Trophies and medals won by members of Newmarket Swimming Club are back on display once again thanks to a generous donation from a Cambridgeshire company.

Following a recent refurbishment of Newmarket Leisure Centre’s foyer area the club, which is housed at the Exning Road centre, lost its trophy cabinet in the transition.

With the club in need of a replacement cabinet Grant Instruments Limited of Shepeth, whose product manager Lisa Withers is membership secretary at Newmarket Swimming Club, stepped forward to provide the club with a new cabinet, much to the delight of officials at the club.

“Thanks to Grant Instruments’ donation of a new, and improved cabinet, we can not only show off our great achievements again but are highly visible to the general public who visit the leisure centre,” said Chris Bellwood, chairman.

“On behalf of the club I would like to thank Grant Instruments for their fantastic generosity and support.”
