The Club operates in a friendly atmosphere which encourages its members to develop in a relaxed but committed environment. Members that show commitment will undoubtedly personally benefit from the results of their hard work, as well as having the satisfaction of being a member of a great team of friends.

Just one regret – Fiona forgot her step ladder!
Details are now available for the club’s Development Meet on Saturday 10th May at Strode, 2 to 4pm. All the details you need are on our dedicated page – Development Meet 2014. This is for ALL Improver and Advanced swimmers. We also need offers of help from the rest of the club. If you can help please put your name on the list on the board or email Fiona.
Some brilliant swims were seen at a very busy Weston Easter Meet which culminated with Callum Greenwood, George Leaman, Sophie Olver and Ben Penhale receiving Top Boy or Top Girl awards in their respective age groups. Once we receive the officials results we will post these on our results page – rest assured there will be plenty of medals and personal best times! Well done to all and thanks to Pete, Nic, Pat, Jane and Fran for their hard work and remaining relatively sane!! Also thanks to Paul Chambers, Carl Scammell, Sally Jenkins, Allison Penhale and Neil Godfrey for supporting the Meet in an officials capacity – hope you enjoyed it!
Our sincere apologies to Kate Gay and Tom Jones for omitting to mention their recent qualification as new Level 1 Teachers. We thought that we had mentioned their achievement in the last newsletter issued in February, but now realise we didn’t! Sorry guys, and well done! Good luck to Tom who will be leaving us for Camp America shortly.
Regarding newsletters, it is very time consuming to produce a monthly newsletter and the club have not issued one since February. We haven’t had a stream of complaints about the missing newsletters (!!) so we would appreciate your comments on whether a monthly newsletter is necessary with news also communicated via the web and email. If the membership would like the newsletters to continue then we will of course reinstate them – or perhaps a quarterly newsletter would be better. Please email your views to Fiona so that we can gauge interest. Thankyou!
The excitement builds again as another Clevedon swimmer, Harriet Dickinson, heads to Glasgow for the British Para-Swimming International Meet. Despite recent injury, Harriet has qualified for 5 events, with her campaign starting tomorrow. We will keep you updated, but there is live stream available on the British Swimming website here. All the best Harriet, Clevedon will be cheering you on!
