This is a medley relay gala held annually in memory of Frank Davies. Frank and his family were members of Kingfishers for many years and Frank served on the committee being the treasurer for quite some time. Sadly in 1995 Frank died of cancer and his family have provided trophies each year for this gala to be held in his memory.
The swimmers are organised into teams hopefully evenly matched with each team having where possible, a swimmer aged under 9, under 11, under 13 and open. The idea is that the first swimmer does 1 length backstroke and then the others each do 2 lengths, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle.
