The week of the 1st-7th June was National Volunteers Week and Crediton & District Swimming Club would like to recognise and thank all the marvellous volunteers involved in its running for their hard work and time. The club has been running for 12 years and now has well over 100 members who can train up to five times a week, under the superb Head Coach, Jane Brimacombe and Assistant Coach Martin Williams.
The current Chairman, Rob Brimacombe has worked relentlessly to produce a club with not only an exemplary training programme but also a fun, social side too. (This weekend club members had the opportunity to train in the 50m pool in Plymouth and then ice skate afterwards).
The club, however, could not function without the dedication of its volunteers who, more often than not, work tirelessly behind the scenes giving their time, expertise and support. So a big thank you, always felt, but perhaps not often enough said to :-
Rob Brimacombe – Chairman
Sinead Partridge - Secretary
Claire Slee – Treasurer
Ian Jones – Welfare Officer
Pam Bedford – PR Officer
Darren Beer – Competition Secretary
Louise Peters – Fundraising Officer
