Marie has run a Sunday Shop for over 24 years at both Gainsborough Dolphins and before that, Trenton Dolphins.
Every Sunday there has been club night, Marie has been there offering all the usual swim gear – goggles, kick boards, pull buoy’s, bags, costume’s and more but she has decided that now is the time to retire. Marie has also helped at the Club Champs and league gala’s serving drinks, doing the desk and raffle amongst things.
To show the clubs appreciation for that dedication, at the final Club Champs of the season, Marie was presented with a basket of winter plants and a glass dolphin paper weight along with a Thank you card.
Once again on behalf of all at the club, thank you Marie
Swim Mark is basically an audit of our operating and business systems.
The club gained, what was then known as Swim 21 a couple of years ago and each year you must go through what is termed ‘a health check’, success means you are re-accredited for another year.
Swim 21 recently changed to Swim Mark, and the ASA to Swim England which required, as a minimum, several documents being updated to alter these references. We also had too present several documents in a new format or with current data.
Paula Osborne, our Swim Mark leader, once again took charge of the process and through her hard work and with the support of club colleagues I am pleased to announce that her efforts have allowed us to be successful as we have gained re-accreditation for 2019.
On behalf of the club I would like to thank Paula for her support and hard work.
The Management Team
The Management Committee are pleased to inform you that we raised £2360 from the Mr P Tribute Swim, which will be spilt equally between the nominated charities, McMillan and Marie Curie.
Thank you to all concerned.
