Calling all Parents! - Club Championships 2015

We would like as many parents as possible to help organise and run this important annual event. The more help we can get, the less onerous the various tasks will be for all. Many of our swimmers achieved successful PB's and Kent qualifying times last year and there is no question that having plenty of parents and volunteers involved contributed to this.  Please speak to Alison Gentry, Sarah Bridges or Mark Leman if you can help.  More info to follow after the summer break.
