An Isle of Wight woman has been presented with the ‘most improved swimmer of the year’ cup at the Isle of Wight Marlins Masters Swim Club.

Roz Sheward was awarded the accolade during the Marlins Masters’ morning swim – by life president Joan Kidd.

Roz says she’s delighted:

“I joined the Club to improve my freestyle and with the help of Jo Cooper, I have certainly done that. It is lovely to be able to swim in disciplined lanes and being nice and early it sets you up for the day.”

The sessions, which take place every Tuesday and Thursday mornings between 7.30 am and 8.30 am, are held at The Heights Leisure Centre in Sandown.
