Christmas Party and Presentation Night

Christmas Party and Presentation Night  17th December 2010

Heavy snow followed by ice during the day affected Coventry very badly – Bedworth and Nuneaton escaping the worst. Unfortunately, some members could not get to the final swim of 2010 and missed the party. Father Christmas had no such problems – it was perfect conditions for sledge and reindeer. All the younger members gave their last requests for the big day and received an early present.

Photographs will be on the website soon.

Club T shirts were presented to all members – thanks to the fund-raisers for this. Regular members unable to get to the party will receive theirs in the New Year.

Hinckley Gala Certificates and Goody Bags were presented to some of the 12 swimmers who represented the club in the Hinckley Gala. Again, some will have to wait until the New Year.

A very special presentation was made to Mandy Younger for all her years of service to the club as treasurer and secretary. Thank you so much Mandy. Mandy has handed over her duties to Marie Clarke and she intends to continue as a committee member.

As always, the raffle took some time to draw because of the generosity of members donating prizes. The list of ticket numbers drawn is published separately.

Thank you to all who managed to attend and all of you for your support throughout the year.

Merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year to everyone. See you on 7th January 2011.
