49th Annual Round the Pier Swim.

It can now be confirmed that the 49th Round the Pier Swim at Aberavon Beach, organised annually by Aberavon Green Stars RFC, will be held on Saturday, August 19 starting at 5.15 p.m.

Since last year's Pier Swim the Darwin Road clubhouse, opened by the rugby club in May 1962, has regrettably had to be closed and is now awaiting demolition for housing development. However, the committee and members have been very busy for the last six months converting the Little Warren changing rooms pavilion into a new clubhouse from where the 49th Round the Pier swim will be run.

As well as a change of venue there has been an organisational change and the lead organiser will now be the club president Cllr Mathew Crowley assisted by Bernard Donovan, who has run the Pier Swim since the inaugural event in 1969, and James Davies of Tata Steel UK who remain the main sponsors of this popular biathlon.

Further details will be published soon and in the meantime the mobile phone contact numbers are Cllr Mathew Crowley 07758.761108, Bernard Donovan 07505.141137 and James Davies 07837.426894.
