Posted on: 22nd May 2023

The evening was very successful with good views of the Channel and an excellent meal in the company of the Town Mayor of Folkestone, Councillor Nicola Keen, the President of the British Long Distance Swimming Association, Vince Classen and Mrs. Avril Mitchell, representing the swimmers from 50 years ago.

Special thanks to photographer Steve Hadfield and to our dinner organiser Fiona Southwell.

Thank you to all who attended - it was lovely to celebrate with you.
