Piranhas News - Piranhas One Club Awards was a great success on Sunday. P1s to P6s all got awards as did the volunteer of the year, Yvonne Cameron. All well earned and we hope that the Saturday evening at Peebles Hydro is equally brilliant. Easter Sunday sees reduced training. P2 and P7 are giving it a go, but please note the venue change. We will all be at Gytes from now on till the end of the season. Finally, the new kit offer is winging its way to you with samples available at various training sessions. Happy egg hunting!
