Meet a Member at a distance – Janet

I have been a ‘country’ member of Spencer for a good many years attaining a number of world records as a member of our teams.  The most special memory I have is beating our own world record in the medley team with Di Ford, Amanda Heath, Jean Howard-Jones and myself at the European championships in London in 2016.

I am based in a beautiful part of the country, Portishead just outside of Bristol, overlooking the Bristol Channel.  My fitness regime since lockdown Is to walk for an hour and half at around six every morning.

I have not been able to compete for the last 3 or 4 years due to my husband’s ill health. I did compete in the Royal Navy meet at Millfield back in February In attempt to regain some sort of form but then lockdown came. (Ed. Janet is top of the GB 2020 rankings for 75-79 short course 50 and 100 back)

My local pool has not reopened yet and the latest information is that it will not reopen until September.  I am so looking forward to getting back into the water and hopefully it will not take too long to get back to fitness.
