With much sadness

It is with deep regret that we inform you that Laurie Webster, one of the club founders, passed away this week.

Laurie was a founder member of the club back in 1974 and has maintained his strong links with the club for all these years until recent illness prevented him from attending sessions to keep a watchful eye on us all.

Laurie was instrumental in teaching hundreds of children to swim, with many of his swimmers now bringing their own children to the club to learn to swim.

Laurie also taught many of our current coaches, and many across the County and from outside the County, the skills and knowledge they all have today. He also played an active role in the Royal Life Saving Society for many years.

Laurie will be sadly missed by many in the club.
