LOCAL MP HAILS BANFF BAY SWIM A SUCCESS

Monday, 16 August 2010

Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford has hailed this year's Banff Bay Swim a great success after the event saw the largest number of entrants for many years. 

The MP was speaking at the presentation of the prizes by former Banffshire Lord Lieutenant – and former Banff Bay Swim winner – James McPherson after the event on Saturday afternoon. 

Speaking at Macduff Harbour, Dr Whiteford said: 

"This year's event has seen the largest number of entrants in recent years and each and every one of them, whether they were one of the winners in the various categories or whether they completed the distance from Banff to Macduff or not deserve our admiration and congratulations for being brave enough to try. 

"Our thanks go to the Coastguard, the Lifeboat crew and the Rib Rescue team for making the event safe for all those taking part, and also to the crowds who lined the harbour to cheer home the swimmers. 

"Finally, Rhoda and Phil Mitchell who took on the organising of the event this year deserve our thanks and congratulations on organising a safe and successful event."
