Swimmers’ gala triumph


YOUNG Portishead swimmers returned triumphant from a regional swimming gala.

Pupils from High Down Junior School excelled at the North Somerset Schools Gala at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre in Weston, finishing either first or second in every heat they entered.

All pupils returned to school with either team or individual medals.

A spokesman for the school said: “The children were fantastic as always and were very competitive. This is the first of several swimming events we will be taking part in, so this was a fantastic start.”
