No shoes poolside

Spectrum has asked us to remind everyone that shoes are not permitted on poolside.

Parents or guardians coming to watch classes, drop off or collect children must remove their footwear when entering the pool hall.

The spectator entry for diving classes is through the doors towards the top of the corridor. Please exit through the same doors.

Only divers are allowed to walk barefooted along poolside to and from the changing rooms.

If the signage that is in place is ignored and the situation does not improve, a blanket ban will be imposed on us. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Special General Meeting

Big thanks to everyone who attended a special general meeting of the club on Thursday 19th October, where members discussed and voted in favour of a new constitution.
Our constitution, which was last updated a couple of years ago, aligns with Swim England’s current model articles of association and is an important element in our SwimMark reaccreditation.
Club chairman Stuart Johnson thanked members for showing their support and to those who have contributed in some way towards reaccreditation. Official notification is expected in due course. 
Particular thanks were recorded to club charity officer Jon Smith for his work on constitutional matters.

Winter club competition

Thanks to everyone who supported and took part in the winter club competitionour main fundraising event of the year. There was a good turnout across 3½ hours of pool time, with a total of 74 divers competing across eight events.

For many in our programme this was their first ever competition. Divers and parents in the first couple of sessions were also treated to dive shows from some of our development and age group squad divers.

The detailed results and a selection of photos from the meet can be found here.
