    New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.

I wanted to thank you for such a well organised event. All your communications and briefings were very clear and helpful. The marshals and safety crew out on the paddle boards were excellent. I don't think I have ever swum in an event where there have been so many excellent support crew. They were positioned at exactly the right places to help guide me round the course and they were also supportive and encouraging - especially on my last lap, where they stuck closely to me and offered all sorts of encouraging comments. I would like to thank each one of them. It must have been cold and difficult for them out there. Billie Oliver
