MRS AGGIE JORDAN. 1922 – 2020

November 14, 2020

It is with great sadness that we have to inform all members that our longest standing Honorary Life Member, Mrs Aggie Jordan has passed away at the grand age of 98 years old.

Aggie and her husband Ralph joined the Exmouth Swimming and Life Saving Society in the early to mid 1960’s.  Aggie would be on the table on a club night down at the old pool on the seafront making sure everything ran smoothly.

Aggie was an ASA club delegate and also a Western Counties delegate.

Aggie was the Treasurer for the Society  and served for 20 plus years.

Aggie was also Trophy Steward for a number of years.

Aggie was a strong supporter of the Centenary Year and the Channel Relay Swim in 1993. She had learnt to drive after losing her husband and with Pam Snowshall, who had helped teach her to drive, set off to drive to Dover  to support the swimmers.

Aggie retired from the Society a few years ago but always kept in touch.

Aggie’s family have very strong ties with the Society and some of her great grandchildren are learning to swim with us now.

Last year was the club’s 125 year celebration at Ocean. Aggie was determined to come and as the Society’s oldest member was asked to cut the celebration cake.

Aggie, you were a very special lady and will remain in our hearts always.

Saturday Learn-To-Swim Lessons Suspension

November 02, 2020

Following our earlier post cancelling all swimming from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December please see a message from the Saturday night Learn to Swim section chairman Barry Westaway:-

 

Due to the November Lock-down and subsequent closure of the pool our Saturday night lessons will be suspended until current restrictions are lifted.

Please keep an eye here or on our Facebook page where we will post details about returning once we know more.

Keep safe and regards to all.

Suspension of all Swimming from November 5th.

November 02, 2020

Following the Government announcement last night we will once again sadly have to stop swimming from Thursday 5th November to Wednesday 2nd December.

 

We will currently be able to restart swimming again on Thursday 3rd December but please keep checking this page for posts updating you about when we will be able to return to the water.

 

Swimming will take place for C&D and Masters swimmers between Sunday 1st November and Wednesday 4th November following the current regional restrictions. Unfortunately yesterday (31st October) was the final Saturday night Learn to Swim session before the new National Lockdown.

 

C&D and Masters Swimmers please cancel your standing orders again until further notice.

 

We appreciate many people pay their fees on the 1st of the month. Hopefully because the 1st is a Sunday the payment won’t go out and you will still be able to stop it. If payments are received we won’t be making refund payments but will hold the amount as a credit for when we are able to restart swimming again. E.g. if you pay in November whilst we are in lockdown we won’t expect payment from you in the month we return to swimming again (which will currently be December).

 

Thank you for your cooperation. Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to sessions again when we are allowed to do so.

RETURN TO SWIMMING - Saturday Learn-to-Swim Evening Sessions

September 04, 2020

Lessons are scheduled to start in October. Please can all members of the Learn-toSwim lessons please make contact with us via the e-mail addresses below. An information sheet will then be emailed to you so that you can make an informed decision about accepting a place.

 

Things will not be the same as before on our return as Covid-19 guidelines and LED protocols will need to be observed and adhered to. If you can pass this information on to friends with swimmers who may not use social media, it would be appreciated. The emails will be checked daily and information sheets forwarded by return.

 

Please book a place as soon as possible. We have worked hard to make sure all those swimming in March 2020 can be allocated space but you MUST book a place once you have been sent details. Thank you for your patience and co-operation. Please email Barry or Julia as soon as possible. Barry Westaway email: barry.westaway@sky.com Julia Tolman-May email: eslss@sky.com

Message Regarding Fees

March 21, 2020

Dear Swimmers,

Now the situation is a bit clearer and we know we won't be swimming for an extended period of time we would like to ask you to cancel your standing order payments to the club from April onwards. PLEASE NOTE:- you must cancel the payment with the bank yourself; because payment is by standing order and not direct debit the club aren't able to do this for you.

With most members having already paid in March we would ask, in the interest of fairness, that if you are still due to pay for March that you do so.

We are aware that members have paid full fees in March and were unable to attend all sessions. When we are able to return to swimming the first month back will be charged at half price to compensate swimmers for their missed sessions.

Hoping you all keep fit, safe, and healthy. We look forward to seeing you back down the pool as soon as it's safe to do so.

Ian, Sue, and Martin.

Treasurers and Chairman

Annual Learn To Swim Gala

October 04, 2019

The Society's youngest members have also just had their big event of the year, with the Annual Learn to Swim Gala, for those that attend lessons on a Saturday evening. It was a fantastic event with races ranging from 10 metres upwards.

The majority of the youngest swimmers were participating in their first ever gala, and every swimmer taking part received a medal for their fantastic efforts. A big thank you now, to all those that helped out with the gala.

The society continues to accommodate swimmers of all ages and all abilities and if you would like further information on joining, please refer to our website www.exmouthswimming.org.uk
