Cake Stall Success

The cake stall that was organised in December raised nearly £100 for the club which was fantastic.  A big THANK YOU must go to Hazel and Ralph Lynch for organising the event and to members who made or contributed cakes to the stall.  However, the biggest THANK YOU must go to Megan Layzell, Hannah Trude and Molly Kent who went around local shops in their new club kit to promote the stall and raise awareness of the clubs fund raising initiative.  Their personalities influenced many people to provide additional donations which helped make the event such a success.

The club would just like to highlight that such events need the help of all members in order to make them successful and we therefore ask and encourage both swimmers and parents to step forward when the next opportunity arises.

As we move to the start of the new swimming season we are still in need of someone to manage the club kit.  The role will require the responsible person to process orders and maintain stock levels so current and new members are able to purchase or replace kit as and when necessary.  We really need a parent/guardian to come forward before the Sept 5th kit launch so please make contact with Ralph Lynch if you can support this role.


Home Gala

Sunday 15th November 2015Swimming-Gala

The club is pleased to announce plans to hold a home gala in conjunction with Chard Swimming Club on Sunday 15th November.  This will be the first gala the club has held for many years so we really hope it will be supported by all our members.  Obviously such an event requires pre-planning and assistance on the day, especially from parents/guardians, so we will be publishing a help list in September which we will be seeking volunteers for to ensure the event is a success.

Please remember this is a great opportunity for the club to promote itself as well as raise some vital funds so any donations or sponsorships will be very welcome.

Kit Launch – New Date

Date for diaryThe rescheduled date for the kit launch will be Saturday 5th September starting at 5:30pm at Cotleigh Village Hall.  As previously advertised the event will consist of the unveiling of the new kit along with a size-up and ordering session.  This will then be followed by a Nutritionist Presentation which will provide an insight into dietary and lifestyle options for both swimmers and parents.  Our Head Coach will also be delivering information about the new club structure and outline how this will aid the development of swimmers.
