Notices

Tickets are now on sale for our annual presentation evening being held on Friday 1st March at Crofton Hall in Orpington. Those of you who attended last year will remember this is not only an opportunity for parents and swimmers to have some fun but also a time for us to celebrate the successes of our swimmers over the year and to award all our swimmers who competed in our latest annual gala with their trophy. This was a very popular event last year and with so many swimmers competing, these tickets will be in high demand and due to hall restrictions tickets are to be sold on a first come first served basis. Michelle will be at Walnuts on Monday evening and at various locations and times over the next few weeks so please see her to purchase your tickets at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment as we can not make exceptions if numbers are exceeded. Tickets will be priced at £5 each or £20 per swim family. Crofton Halls has a licensed bar so can we ask you not to bring your own beverages in to the venue. We have an agreement with Crofton that drinks will be purchased and by breaking this agreement we risk losing this venue for future presentations. We have arranged by popular demand for our photo booth to return, this will open once the presentations are over and will be free for all to use. Throughout the night we will again play heads & tails and there will be a prize for the last remaining adult and last remaining child. This is always a fun game which only cost £1 to enter, our captains will be selling tickets on the night after our awards. All that’s left to say is that we all really looking forward to celebrating with you all and enjoying an evening away from the pool!
