Lost Property We have had a jolly good sort out of the ASC cupboards at the leisure centre and as a result there is a lot of lost property – this will be available for collection from the Club desk (Sundays at the leisure centre) from today until Sunday 24th February (Sunday before Pointscore) – after that it will all be disposed of via “second hand sale” to raise funds for Club equipment.  Going forward, lost property will only be available for a month (again at the Club desk) before it is disposed of.   Of course, any equipment that bears a swimmer’s name will be returned to the swimmer – please label your stuff!
Announcer Needed In our bid to get internal galas licenced, we are trialling a new time recording system at the next Pointscore event.  It will mean that our current 'desk' will need to be moved, as we need contact with the other end of the pool.  We are therefore in the market for an Announcer for Pointscore / Galas, as the microphone won't work at the other end of the pool.  If you would be able to offer your help (voice) with this, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Details are also available on the "Volunteering Opportunitues" page of the website.
Why Not Become A British Swimming Official? There are two Officials "introduction to" sessions – one on the 17th February and one on the 24th February (both 4:30pm-7:00pm and both on the calendar on the website).  They are "rolling" sessions so people can just pop along at any time and join in.  If you're interested, please attend these at a time that suits you on these days.  If you have any queries, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We also have a Timekeepers course scheduled for 10th March - if you'd like to attend this, please email your interest This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Awards If anyone has yet to collect trophies, medals or rosettes from Club Champs, please do so at the desk at the leisure centre today (Sunday).
Contacting the Coaches If you need to contact a Coach regarding your swimmer outside of the training session times, please can you limit this contact to the Head Coach (Chris Tarry) and Assistant Head Coach (Kate Offord) only.  
Fundraising by Shopping Please consider raising funds for our club via the Easy Fundraising online service. Shopping doesn't cost you a penny more, but as you make purchases online shops make a donation to the club. All you do is register (it's good to click the "Find & Remind" button) and start shopping. Please give it a go and encourage others to do so too – it's effectively free money to benefit the members of our club! Thank you.  More information is on the website, or via the link 
Club Kit The new kit is now available online and via the kit shop on our website.  It's Nike branded clothing with the new Club logo and an option to personalise with your swimmer's initials.  Check it out via the link
