Letter From The Club President – Maureen Dickinson

Welcome to 2015 – New Year is a special time traditionally a time to set new aims and objectives with the odd ‘resolution’ or two thrown in.  It also gives us an opportunity to reflect on the past year, what went ‘well’ and if there were any negative experiences analyse them and put solutions in place to prevent them happening again.

I was elected as your President at the November AGM and am usually down at the pool every Wednesday; I finish teaching in the learner pool at 7pm and can be around for as long as you need me. Please take the time to introduce yourselves.  I am proud to have been a member of the Club for almost 40 years, Kingfishers is an all inclusive Club based around the whole family not just the swimmers. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Yours in swimming

Maureen Dickinson
