Ealing Meet - no nuts please

Please could all parents of swimmers attending Ealing this weekend make sure that their child does not bring any food that contains nuts, as there are at least 3 swimmers from WSC with serious nut allergies competing at Ealing this weekend. Whilst we cannot make any guarantees that other swimmers there will not have food containing nuts, we need to make sure our own do not put any swimmer in a situation where they could have an allergic reaction.

Parents of swimmers with any known allergy, must make sure that they bring their child's epipen to the meet. Also, any swimmer with asthma, however mild, must make sure the they have an inhaler in their kit bag. Different pools can have different chlorine levels that could trigger an unexpected attack, and nerves can exacerbate this.

Many thank for you support with this.
