Town Mayor of Thatcham’s swimming challenge

The Mayor of Thatcham, Councillor Ellen Crumly, has set herself the challenge of swimming 33km in her local pool. The distance is the width of the English Channel from Dover to Cap Gris Nez. The Mayor started the challenge in early November and aims to complete this in a total of 12 weeks. With 4 weeks left the Mayor has completed 66% of the distance.

The aim of the challenge is to raise money from sponsors for her two nominated charities, The Rosemary Appeal and Young People & Children First. If you would like to sponsor Madam Mayor please visit
