New Year’s Day Charity Swim

Taylor Lane managing director, Colin Taylor and his wife, Kath enjoyed a rather chilly start to the New Year with a fundraising swim in the sea at Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire.

Joined by family and friends, Colin and Kath have taken part in the annual charity event since 2008, raising funds for Breast Cancer Care and research charities.  To date the team has raised £7000.

“We have taken part in the New Year’s Day swim for nearly 10 years.  It started off with just Colin, myself and our daughter but has grown to include various friends so there have been 10 of us for the last four years.   I’m a breast cancer survivor and the swim seemed like a good way to put something back, it’s also great fun!  Over the years we’ve raised thousands of pounds for Breast Cancer Care and research charities.”

New Year’s Day 2017 was a record breaking year for the Saundersfoot New Year’s Day Swim with 1856 people going in the water!

5/ 5 Stars

"Taylor Lane were key to the design process. They do all the engineering calculations...and tell you if something’s possible or not, calculate the truss requirements etc. "

5/ 5 Stars

"We have a long history with Taylor Lane. They have worked with Lovell and been part of our supply chain for well over 15 years, that I know to. When I have visited Hereford (on a number of occasions), it’s a welcoming business that’s open, honest and transparent on all matters commercial, design, technical. We quickly derived confidence that they were the right choice for us...and that’s been vindicated by performance onsite thereafter."
