Christmas Parties start with a Splash!

Tue 06/Dec/2016

Tadpoles, Bronze, Chrome and Silver squads led by Ben Strover started off the Christmas season with HUGE SPLASH. Two sessions of excited young swimmers took on the inflatable assault course floating in the pool, followed by a hot snack and ice creams. Thanks goes to The Walnuts team who not only served up a hot snack afterwards but ensured the swimmers were suitably wet to climb, slide and fall off, by spraying them regularly with a hose and splashing them with large scoops of water. Also thank you to Katie Napier, Will Magee-Brown, Lilli Cutajar, Justin Strover and Max Peel from top squad who came along to support Ben; although it’s fair to say, they enjoyed it just as much as the others. Our swimmers, young and old, are a very competitive bunch!.

Swimmers Bag Funds for Winter Camp

Sat 03/Dec/2016

Ten of the swimmers attending Winter Camp next October were packing shopping bags at M&S at the Nugent Centre on Saturday morning. It was a busy couple of hours but the swimmers were rewarded with donations from customers - starting off the fund raising rather nicely. Thanks to Helen for arranging and to M&S store management for the opportunity. We received some really lovely comments from customers who said how polite and helpful the swimmers were which is always a pleasure to hear when they are representing the club. Well done to William, Michael, Noah, Callum, Justin, Jess H , Lauren, Jess B, Abi and Maria.

It’s that time of year when we need to ask all trophy holders to hand back their trophies so we can get them ready for this year’s winners. Please return to Berenice (Katie Napier’s mum). Berenice will be able to take them during the remaining club champs events including at the sprints event on 17th December. She is also happy to take them at any time you see her (usually while Top Squad are swimming). If you keep missing her then please pass to your coach or leave at the desk on a Monday evening. If you have lots to hand back it is easier to transport them in a box. Please return all trophies by the 17th. Thank you.
Gold Squad are going to Pizza Express on the 16th December after training at 18:30. Please add your name and menu choice to the list at The Walnuts before Thursday 1st and pay Alice Bennett at £5 deposit.
Top Squad are having a Christmas meal on Wednesday 14th December at Reku Zens in the high street. The meal is booked for 20:30, so training will finish at 20:00. The buffet costs £15 which does not include drinks. Please pay Club Captain Sam Gaster, and add your name to the sheet and The Walnuts. Sam is also organising a Secret Santa which is £10.
The final sprints gala is on the 17th December and during the gala the Christmas Hampers are raffled to raise funds for the club. There is a list at The Walnuts of donations needed to put the hampers together. Please chat to ladies on the desk on Mondays or Sandra Gaster. As of Monday 28th, Chutneys and Jams, Biscuits for cheese, and Christmas Cakes among others are still being sought after. Thanks, as always, for your help; and of course good luck in the raffle.
This year Platinum's Christmas meal will be after training on Friday 9th at Reku Zen in the high street. The table is booked for 20:15 and the cost of the buffet is £16; please either pay Club Captain Katie Napier or Gina at the desk on Monday in a marked envelope by Monday 5th and add your name to the list at The Walnuts. Drinks are not included with the buffet so please bring money for your drinks. (Ideally coins for £5 notes to make change easier). If you have a Christmas jumper don't forget to wear it. :)
