New Solo & Relay Autograph Books at Les Fleurs in Dover

New autograph books for relay and solo swimmers are available at Les Fleurs pub in Dover (https://www.les-fleurs.co.uk/)

Jeffrey Flowers, landlord at Les Fleurs, is kindly storing the autograph books for us.

He is also allowing solo swimmers to sign the wall if they ask for permission first and buy at least a drink from the bar. 

Relay swimmers should sign the books only instead of the wall due to lack of space.

Jeffrey is very kindly letting us do this so please respect the his rules.

He has also constructed some dormitories for swimmers - see the website and call for details
