Thank you to everyone who attended out presentation event. It has been a very hard 18 months or so for everyone involved in the club; the swimmers trying to keep fit and motivated, the parents ferrying children to different locations, our Covid officers keeping everyone safe and the members of the committee keeping everyone informed and organised.
On top of this we had to find a new Head Coach, but we are very pleased that Ross joined us and are enthusiastic to see him taking the club forward over the coming years. We would like to thank our teachers and coaches for the great support they provide our swimmers. Also a special mention to Jane O’Brien who stepped forward to be our club. Jane is unable to continue in this role and we are now seeking for someone to fill this vacancy on an urgent basis.
After more than 80 years volunteering between them, both Rachel and Mike have decided to reluctantly reduce their commitment to the club. Mike will no longer be poolside, unless he is there for a swim and Rachel will no longer be teaching, but may still coach occasionally. All of us at Hertford would like to thank them for their dedication to the club, helping our youngsters to reach their full potential.
This leaves a big hole in the club which we are trying to fill and are looking for parents who would be willing to help out. Training is available.
Finally a big thank you to Rachel for all her hard work locating, retrieving and cleaning all the trophies.
Well done to everyone who competed at this year’s Club Champs; it was wonderful to see our swimmers competing again. Long may it continue.
