Some of the clubs have sent letters of support, thank you, but if we could get every member of every club to sign up to the petition we may have more influence over the decision makers. We have seen the success of these types of petition with Wolverhampton and Coventry.

A suitable competition pool in Worcester will be of benefit to us all, imagine being able to swim your county championships in a central situation in Worcester county!

Trophies won by the County teams.
An excellent weekend at Sheffield – the swimming was excellent with many personal bests – Mark lang and Ken Ho had exceptional swims. Unfortunately, however hard we tried we could not manage to stay in Division 1 for next year.
The Swimming committee congratulates all the swimmers on their performance and their behaviour over the whole weekend, it was a pleasure to be with the team.

Worcester county took over 70 swimmers to Stafford to take part in the annual three Counties Gala (Worcester, Gloucester, Stafford).

New swimmers were presented with County Badges and all swimmers received the Three Counties Badge from Past President Marion Bench.
The team was well supported by team managers and coaches, Jill Biddle and Mark Wilmott and many parents who travelled to the Stafford Pool.
