Novice swimmers from Newmarket’s Ditton Lodge Primary School swam their way to success in the development gala organised as part of the Forest Heath Schools’ Swimming Festival held at Newmarket Leisure Centre on Wednesday.

Ditton Lodge swimmers, pictured here receiving their award from council chairman Cllr Andy Drummond, and runners up St Louis, will now represent the Forest Heath Sports Partnership at the Sainsbury’s Suffolk School Games Summer Festival in Bury St Edmunds in July.

Ian Jackson, sports development manager at the Sports Partnership, said of the event: “This was an excellent example of partnership working with so many agencies coming together to provide an opportunity for young people at school in the local area to take part in a swimming competition.”
