Frome Swimming Club Gala Presentation Evening

Swimmers, family, friends, coaches and volunteers enjoyed an evening of celebrations when they met on Friday 24th Feb for their Gala Presentation evening. 

Head Coach Pete Billing and Academy Coach Sharon Smith praised the efforts of all the swimmers who took part in the gala swims before Christmas.

All events were sprints in both the 25metres and 50 metres for aged groups.  There was a slight twist on the Individual Medley event where many swimmers tried all four swimming strokes of fly, back, breast and freestyle in a combined ‘race’.

Pete Billing and Brad Poole presented all of the swimmers with their medals throughout the evening.  Parent, grandparents, friends and family got the opportunity to see their swimmers proudly receive their placed positions medals.

Additional awards were presented to some of our swimmers, polo players and a special recognition award for a member of the Swimming Club Committee for all the hard work, effort and commitment shown to the club.

Presidents Award- Matt Hann; FDC Law – Laraine Chalmers; Coach’s Cup – Georgia Wheeler; Patrick Kaye Cup-Gil and Dillon Endicott; Style Boy – Hugo Jones; Style Girl – Alisha Freeman; Progress Boy – Xavier Pegg; Progress Girl – Charley Hernandez-Rumming; Young Volunteer – Alexander Smith.

A special mention to  Dan and Susie Vowles who worked so hard to make the raffle a success and start to build up much needed funds for the club.  Local businesses and individuals gifted the club with so many gifts including Spotless Valeting, Frome Cheese Show, Figgins of Frome, Meadow Lodge Beauty, JF M.O.T., Subway Frome, Mistral Clothing, High Pavement Cafe, Millie Moon Haberdashery, Amica and Younique.  The Club would like to thank you all for helping us.
