The 45th Annual General Meeting of your
club will be held at the usual venue, the 3VA Annexe, off Saffrons Road,
Eastbourne, at 7.30 pm on Friday 2nd June.
There is a map on the pool side notice
board and also a form for nominations to the committee.
As well as electing the committee, the
meeting will review our activities for the last year, receive the accounts
and the club shield will be presented.
Refreshments will be available after the
meeting, which usually lasts for less than an hour, and there will be a
chance to look at the club photo albums and reports.
Fun Gala - Sunday 2nd April
Our Fun Gala this year was a very close
contest with only a single point between the two teams.
Sian’s Blue Team came first with a total
of 25 points. Well done Neil, Tina, Tom, Barbara and Shirley.
Giles’ Red Team finished second with 24
Eastbourne Mayor, Pat Hearn, presented the
medals, and Kate Smith awarded the Ann Gray Memorial Cup to Shirley.
We are very grateful for the help we
receive from Eastbourne Lions who provide us with extra man/ women power,
medals and the much anticipated picnic lunche.

At the last committee meeting it was agreed that subscriptions would be
kept at £25 a year. This is very good value for up to 50 swims a year.
Subscription renewal slips are enclosed. If you are a tax payer, please
consider giving the club a gift aided donation. Bob has Gift Aid forms
available. Alternatively, cash donations in the pool side collection box
are also a tax efficient way for everyone, so consider putting a few coins
in the collection box every week.
New lockers at Motcombe will take
non-returnable 20p coins but there will be free baskets for poolside use.
