This season was also the club’s 50th anniversary.
The club celebrated with a dinner dance at the Soldiers Club.
Although a little disappointed by the number of ex-club members unable to attend, a great night was had with all surviving life members in attendance and a great mix of past and present swimmers.
The highlight of the evening was long-standing club member Leanne Wilkinson’s induction as a life member.
The club’s annual general meeting was held recently.
A new committee has been formed with the departure of two long-term club members Tony Kingston and Dimity Bowden.
The new committee is president Dave Windred, vice president Leanne Kearney, secretary Fiona O’Brien, treasurer Cara Hebblewhite and registrar Janelle Davis.
