Club Champs– Please can all trophies from last year be returned asap so we can prepare for this year’s.

Payments to the Club– please can all payments to the Club be paid via bank transfer wherever possible, this is to reduce bank charges for the Club. There are 2 accounts- one for Open Meet payments only, the other for everything else. Bank details are:

Open Meet account- Lloyds Bank sort-code 30-99-51 account number 66194568

Main account- Lloyds Bank sort code 30-99-51 account number 00734056

Reference- where possible please put child’s name & what payment is for.

Open Meets– For level 3 and 4 meets we ask for £3 per swimmer per Meet to go towards the Coach passes, wages and travel. If the Meet is over a weekend there is only £3 due not £6. We are trialling reducing this fee to £1.50 for siblings. For example, if a family has 2 children swimming at the same Meet the charge will be £4.50. The Committee will assess whether this is viable after a few Meets. For level 2 Meets the charge is £3.50 per swimmer as there are less swimmers taking part.
