Important Swim Club Update

Our head coach Emily Herbert has decided to step down from the role due to other commitments. Emily will still remain involved with the club both as a swimmer and as a teacher/coach for some of the regular sessions.

Control of the teaching & coaching within the club will be taken forward by two of our existing teachers, Dani Dewey and Dave Gregory. Both have been involved with the club for many years in various capacities and both are competitive swimmers themselves.

We’d like to say thanks to Emily for helping the club through challenging times as we’ve settled into the temporary pool since last Autumn, and we hope you’ll make Dani and Dave feel welcome as they take on their new roles.

We’re now on a two week break and will return to training from Friday 7th September onward. Hope you all enjoy the break…….

Important: Summer Holidays

We’re taking a couple of short breaks from swimming, one at the start of the summer and another at the end.  The dates are shown below, and also on the attached calendar.  During these breaks there will be no swimming club sessions.  At all other times, all normal club sessions will continue.

First break: Monday 16th July to Sunday 29th July inclusive.

Second break: Friday 24th August to Thursday 6th September inclusive.

Postal swim masterpiece

ASWPC Master, Margaret Smith, took part in the Postal Swim this evening. Getting nervously into the pool on her 26th year, Margaret hoped to swim 80+ lengths. After keeping a steady pace, Margaret beat her own record and ended her swim on the 95th length.

Well done Margaret on your impress achievement – 95 lengths/2375m!
