As many of you will know, our Head Coach Pete Chitson has not been at training for some time. Due to work commitments, Pete has unfortunately had to step down from his role of Head Coach. On behalf of the club I'd like to thank Pete for stepping into this role and wish him all the best in the future.

On a personal note I'd like to thank Pete for the support he's given the club over the years as coach/ head coach. I for one know the difficulty in trying to balance home/ work life with the addition of supporting the club and I know Pete's decision was not taken lightly.

With immediate effect, Catherine Bellaby has kindly agreed to be the new Head Coach on a temporary basis. Catherine has been with the club for over thirty years, firstly as a swimmer and later as our Head Coach. Catherine will be supported by her team of coaches and poolside helpers.

Please join us in congratulating Catherine and thanking her, for her, continued commitment to the club.
