The music and style of the Beatles has been a big influence on me over the years.
The old pool has been a massive part of my life. I learned to swim there, attended public sessions, swam, competed and coached, also worked there for a good few years. I probably spent more time in those four walls than anyone else over the years. Some fantastic memories
