Fun Gala - Sunday 8th April

Welcome to 2018

Our annual Fun Gala is on the morning of Sunday 8th April with swimmers arriving at Motcombe Pool at 11am and the gala starting at 11.30. Over the next few weeks we will be practising the games and timing swimmers.

This is a very important club event as it is our opportunity to showcase our club and a chance for both non swimmers and swimmers to join in and have fun. Contact Rowena if you would like to come to the gala, either to take part or to watch, so that you can be included in the numbers for the picnic lunch.

As always we are very grateful for the help of Eastbourne Lions who provide the medals, picnics and extra man power.

* Free Event
* 11 am Doors Open
* Races
* Games
* Medal Presentation
* Picnic Lunch
* Followed by our regular afternoon Swimming Session 2 pm to 4 pm.

A warm welcome to all the new members who have joined recently and breathed new life and fun to our Sunday swimming sessions.

Pool safety is paramount so remember, when you hear the pool alarm or a long whistle blast you must all immediately stop swimming, go to the side of the pool and await further instructions.

Your committee will be meeting soon to plan our 2018 events including the Annual General Meeting and sponsored Seafront Stroll in the summer.

Fund Raising

During January, Waitrose supported us with their Green Token scheme and have donated £314 to our funds.

Remember the pool side collection box for weekly donations. We are able to claim Gift Aid on small donations so every £1 of small change in the box is worth £1.25 to your Club.

Annual Draw

The Annual Draw made an impressive total of £665. This was an excellent result so thank you to everyone who bought and sold tickets. The club would also like to thank our sponsors LawlerDavis who donated the prizes. A list of winners is below:
