New Principal Sponsor for Primary Schools Gala 2019

We are really pleased to be able to announce our new principal sponsor for the Primary Schools Swimming Gala 2019 as Alexander Design Chartered Architects.

John, the principal and founder of the practice, and Juliet have been connected with the club for some time, and also have a young son in the lessons programme. With a passion for community engagement and architectural projects, and with a significant portfolio to show for it, sponsoring one of WCPSC’s community programmes seemed like a great fit for them and their practice. We are delighted to have them on board and look forward to working with them in the lead up to, and on the day of, the Primary Schools Swimming Gala 2019.

To find out more about John and his Winchester-based architectural practice and their many community and residential projects, check out the website or call 01962 878 833. What I can tell you is that you won’t speak to a more passionate family about design, the importance of local history, and community engagement – I only went to say a quick thanks and was there for over an hour!
