Swimathon - help us reintroduce Water Voles to the local area

In the past twenty years many British mammals, including water voles, have declined by up to two-thirds. We want to reintroduce water voles back into our local rivers but we need your help. Please support our champion swimmers who between them will swim for a 24 hour period at Imber Court on Sunday 24th March 2019.
