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.
The individual PB reports and event reports for swimmers have now been updated, following recent galas. For those who are unaware, these can be accessed from https://honitonswim.wordpress.com/swimmers-times/, and are useful for quickly finding entry times for galas.
This Saturdays Kit Launch and Nutritionist Presentation event will now start at 5:15pm rather than the advertished 6pm. The full schedule is as follows:
5:25 – Introduction
5:30 – Nutritionist Presentation from Dr Joanne Barley-Cameron
6:30 – The New Club Structure presented by our Head Coach
7:00 – Welfare break including Tea/Coffee
7:15 – Demonstration of new kit by club members
7:30 – Size up and ordering of new kit
We would appreciate it if parents and swimmers can make every effort to be there for the start of the event in order to benefit from the input by our guest speaker and to accomodate our younger members.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR CHEQUE BOOK/CASH AND IF POSSIBLE YOUR SIZES SO KIT ORDERS CAN BE PROCESSED QUICKLY.
NOTE: We are still in need of a parent/guardian to volunteer for the Kit Coordinators role
18th August 2015
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.
Please find a link below to a letter from the Clubs Chairperson regarding the recruitment of a Club Secretary and Kit Coordinator. These roles need to be filled by September in order for the Club to continue to function and to meet constitution requirements.
The early attention to this letter by parents/guardians would be very much appreciated.
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.
5th September 2015
The 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.
The committee sincerely hope all members will attend this special and important occasion in order for the new kit to finally become a reality.
Further details of the event including prices and discount rates will be published during the summer break so please look out for this on the website.
REMEMBER – If you follow the website you will get notification of any updates published.
Please note the new swimming season will start on Tuesday 2nd Sept and not Sunday 30th August as earlier advertised. Sorry for any disappointment this may cause.
The Committee Meeting scheduled for 23rd Sept has been brought forward to 3rd September.
