A number of swimmers and parents have recently successfully completed the course , which will help with lifeguarding club sessions.

This qualification, is an essential prerequisite to run any of our club sessions, and so we are always looking for any volunteers over 16yrs old who may wish to help.

Livewire are planning a further course, and hope that those that could not make the recent course, and would be happy to help or need more details should contact Maureen Appleby or Neil Musgrove. The course is planned to run on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March.

Please note all the dates of the forthcoming Galas that the club will be taking part in.

We have noted over the last 12 months interest has dwindled in attending the 50m training sessions and the galas.  As you can appreciate the organisation and running of these events take time and expenses. Could people advise if they are available for galas.

If you are selected for a said gala can you confirm your attendance and make every effort to honour your commitment.  Team galas are important and need a full team to participate to enable us to complete correctly.

Thank you

Maureen Appleby  (Event Organiser)
