Last Sunday (22nd March) 8 Hemyock Cubs took part in the County swimming gala at Middlemoor in Exeter.
They all swam very well and came 4th overall in the county.
The certificates were awarded by the Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall Police, Shaun Sawyer.

What a fantastic day of football. All the teams played well and the weather held out for us with only a couple of showers!
The final was…
Hemyock A – Hemyock B.
Both teams played brilliantly and both deserved to win. Hemyock A won 1 – 0 in the last minute of extra time.
Cullompton were the winners of the wooden spoon.
Thank you very much to Hemyock Youth Football Club for sorting the pitches, refereeing and for the refreshments!
As the winners of last years tournament Hemyock are hosting for 2014 this Sunday 8th June at Longmead from 10am.
