Friday Family Suppers - Ed Williams

On Friday 3 March Ed Williams, head coach at Elite Swimming Academy, came to our family supper to speak about his swimming adventures. He is one of the only people in the world to have swum solo across the English Channel, Gibraltar Strait and most recently the North Channel between Ireland and Scotland. Ed talked about resilience, perseverance and goal setting which was well received by the children and adults alike. Full details on Ed's most recent expedition between Ireland and Scotland, including a short video, can be viewed here.

Elite Swimming Academy teaches many of our Fellow's children how to swim in the Clare Hall pool.  For more information on swimming lessons for children contact Elite at
