New Club Championship Records 2017

Thanks to Pat Bayliss for putting this together…
please see this LINK well done all!!!

There are a few changes taking place!!

  • Pat Bayliss has decided to stand down as our Membership Secretary. Pat has been involved with the club for over 15 years and her knowledge of how the Club runs is invaluable, she will be sorely missed by everyone – our thanks go to Pat for all her relentless work, time and effort given to the club during this time. Andrew and Lisa Gray have the unenviable task of filling Pats shoes and there will be a transition period during March/April – our thanks go to Andrew and Lisa for taking this role on.
  • Hannah Davies has also decided to step down as our club Secretary and the club would like to thank Hannah very much for her 2 years’ service as Secretary. Moving forward, Sally Sergeant is taking over the role as Club Secretary and we welcome her to the committee.
  • I will also be standing down as Chair at the clubs AGM in May, I have been involved with the club for over 11 years, the last 5 years as chairperson and have enjoyed every minute of my time in this position. We have seen a lot of changes going from a voluntary Head Coach to a paid position, current swimmer numbers at about 130 and rising and the club financially sound.

If you would like to know about my role please get in touch as the club cannot function without a Chairperson. We also have 2 spare places on our committee if you would like to be involved.

And finally…………..

Our Swimmers Annual Club membership is increasing from 01 January this year. This is mainly due to the ASA increasing their fees that we as an ASA affiliated club have to pay and this is the first increase that we have imposed membership fees in over 6 years.

Annual membership will now be £27.50 per swimmer (an increase from £25)

There will be NO increase in your monthly payments.

Thank you for your continued support

Steve Martin, Chairperson
