The Pool of Fame…

By March 8, 2020Uncategorized

Following on from the near 20years strong post last month I was curious how long some of you have been with us? there are some faces I know have been around a while. Also great to see so many of our coaches with us for so long. With that in mind it would be great to compile a pool of fame. Maybe some prizes?!

 So please comment below and in the event of some tying if you could embellish with how we have helped your swimming, results and achievements that can only help. I know 2 swimmers who still frequently make our fitness sessions that came to Ilford, Essex in the 2002 time period where we started some tech lessons on a Wed Evening. Barbara C was a regular when we then moved a little closer in and ran our tech classes at WF College in Walthamstow.

At one point we also ran a bit of a shuttle service from the end of the Central Line at 6am allowing some Central London swimmers to come out with us to our first lake. Tom and Scott well done for near 20yrs! Any other stories welcomed.

Maria, pictured,  has been coaching with us over 10yrs! Ian and Cedric are probably not that far behind!

    I think I was at the very first session in Ilford in 2002. Although I am not sure Dan would refer to me as a swimmer who “still FREQUENTLY makes the fitness sessions’, bearing in mind he recently pointed out that my new dryrobe has been to more sessions in 2020 than I have.

    I remember Keeley giving me and Gerry a lift back to the ‘stow from the lake a long long time ago. And asking us to stop singing.
