Diddy League Final
Well done! Thanks to our team's efforts we have made the Diddy final, after the three heats we finished in third place over all, behind Consett and North Tyneside.
The team for the final hasn't been decided yet but we would like to make you aware of the arrangements and would appreciate it if you could let Helen Seymour know as soon as possible if your child is or is not available to swim to make the team selection process a bit easier, please email Helen by 31st May.
Our final starts at 9am at Haven Point, South Shields (plenty of parking, lovely pool, and good coffee) and we will organise the bus to leave the Leisure Centre at 7.50am. Valda Butterworth and Helen are working on the fancy dress outfits (there's a prize for best dressed team) and once the team is finalised will be asking for some help to do this.
Following the Annual General Meeting which took place 28th April 2015, the Committee Page has been updated with the members for 2015/6.
