Great News – Returning to the pool 06/09/2021

We have finally had confirmation from Swim England that we can again return to the pool.  We know it is short notice but we can return starting tonight 06/09/2021 for those of you that can make it?

The schedule will be 1830 – 1930 main pool/1930 – 2000 training/play pool every Monday during Nottinghamshire school term and excluding public holidays.

A couple of changes to be aware of due to COVID-19.  

  1. Initially we will not be able to provide volunteers, so while we recruit, and provide the necessary training.  We will require that either parents/carers enter the pool with their child/caree.
  2. Other clubs that have returned are arriving pool ready, and only using the changing facilities after the activity.  If possible it would be appreciated if we could do the same. (This will help in reducing the cleaning burdon at the centre).

Other than that, it will be more or less the same as when you last came to the club.

We are looking forward to seeing you all return and possibly see some new faces too.

Important Update to Committee Duties and Chairmanship – November 2017

Dear All,

Following a committee meeting held on 07th November, I have some important updates for you on committee duties and the role of Chairman.

David has now stepped down from his role as chairman having had seven years of involvement with the club.  Please join me in thanking David for his efforts and guiding the club to where it is today and to wish him well in the future.

During the committee meeting the role of Chairman/Chairwoman was discussed and it was decided that both Cyril Madigan and Laura Sage would take on joint responsibility for the foreseeable future, therefore the duties that were allocated previously have been re-allocated as follows;

Chairpeople: Cyril Madigan / Laura Sage

Membership Secretary: Cyril Madigan

Website Maintenance: Cyril Madigan

New Member Contact point : Joolz Evans

Subs and Membership collection: Laura Sage

Thank you for the support you continue to give Sherwood Seals

Important Update to Committee Duties and Chairmanship

Dear All,

Following a committee meeting held on 26th September, I have some important updates for you on committee duties and the role of Chairman.

It is with a good deal of regret that, after seven years of involvement, I must announce I will be stepping down as Chairman and Membership Secretary of Sherwood Seals.  A change in my personal circumstances means that I can no longer guarantee my availability for the swimming session on a Monday. As such, I don’t want to start letting the club down and so must hand over my roles within the club to others.

During the committee meeting, several duties were re-allocated as follows;

Membership Secretary: Cyril Madigan

Website Maintenance: Cyril Madigan

New Member Contact point : Joolz Evans

Subs and Membership collection: Laura Sage

The role of Chairman/Chairwoman still needs to be filled.

I’m sure you will agree that Sherwood Seals is an important part of our members lives providing a safe and accepting space for them to exercise, socialise and learn to swim.

However, it still remains that the club belongs to the members and carers, with the committee volunteering to be the custodians of running the club.

The committee now need more help to operate the club on a week by week basis and are asking for support. Without a Chairman/Chairwoman and new committee members to take the club forward, there is a real risk that Sherwood Seals could dwindle and cease to exist.

If you would be willing to provide a little of your time to maintain the running of Sherwood Seals so more new members can benefit from what it offers, please speak to a member of the committee who will be happy to discuss what would be involved.

Thank you for the support you continue to give Sherwood Seals

Dave Pawson (Chairman)
