Everyone at Oakhyrst Grange School was thrilled and delighted to hear the news that Mrs Lucy Ashdown-Parkes was able to complete a hugely successful cross channel swim on Friday 11th September 2020. Mrs Ashdown-Parkes set off from Dover at 3.30am and came ashore in France 14 hours and 20 minutes later. This made her the 2,145th person ever to successfully swim the channel.
As a School we are very proud of our strong tradition for swimming and Mrs Ashdown-Parkes’ efforts are all the more significant to us all. Well done, Lucy, we are all so very proud of you.
