Thursday 6th June was an early start for me & my coach Alex Pinniger as we headed to London for a very special appointment.
I had been invited to the Royal garden party & was allowed to be accompanied by one guest. I had decided was that Alex was going to accompany me for the afternoon at the Palace. It was a way of thanking him for everything he has done for me. My mum drove us to London but could not resist a stop at Strafford along the way to view the beautiful Aquatic Center where our journey first began & i won my Paralympic Gold medal last summer. Many people don't realise it but i was also the very person to brake a British Record in the Aquatic center at trials last year when it very first opened.
I had such a lovely day & wish i could do it all again!
