BASC going green

With Bo'ness ASC trying to be more environmentally friendly, Link Housing (one of Scotland’s largest social landlords) kindly supplied the club with reusable water bottles that were distributed to all the volunteers / coaches etc at the recent Bo'ness Mini Meet. This was to stop the wholesale purchase of disposable plastic water bottles that we previously supplied.

Although this is a small step, we should all be more mindful of the use and disposal of certain plastics in our society that is damaging to our health and wildlife.

Special thanks

Big thank you to Mark Beetham and Kevin Cuthill for repairing the lane ropes at BRC so there is no exposed wire. This is safer for the swimmers and also makes putting the lane ropes in and out of the pool much easier as the wire doesn't get tangled.
