Turnbull Gala 4th June 2013

Cheam Marcuda Turnbull galaTuesday 4th June saw the annual Turnbull Gala at Cheam Baths.

Our thanks to Fiona for organising the event and the officials without whom this would not be possible.

Well done to all who entered. For full results please see the results page.


Changing Rooms at Cheam

We have noticed that swimmers are again beginning to leave their clothes within the cubicles at Cheam. Please can you ask the swimmers not to do this. Apart from giving a poor impression of our club to others using the facilities it leads to items being lost or mislaid. If you wish to leave items in the changing rooms please use the lockers provided.


Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers 2013

Please all note that we are collecting these vouchers for use by the club. They can be used for the benefit of all swimmers so please hand them in to either Fiona or Anne.


New Year, New Pool, New Pool Times

MONDAY SWIMMERS

We start swimming at Westcroft on 28th January, when our Monday sessions switch from Morden. Please check your swim times which have been updated on the Training page.

TUESDAY SWIMMERS

Please note that (also with effect from 28th January) our training times at Cheam will change, with all sessions brought forward either 15 or 30 minutes. Again please see the Training page.


2013 Membership Fees

We are pleased to confirm that we are able to freeze our fees at 2012 levels for 2013.

All fees must now be paid by standing order. Attached is a standing order request form which provides all the information required for online banking, or you can print out and take the form to your bank for them to set up the standing order. Please ask your bank to put your child's name as a reference on the payment.

For ease of reference the current fees are shown below.

Depending on how many training sessions you attend the monthly fees for 2013 will be:

  • £22.00 for 1 night per week
  • £33.00 for 2 nights per week
  • £39.00 for 3 or more nights per week

August will remain on a Pay as you Go basis and therefore no monthly subscription is due for August. You may therefore either set up your standing order to pay Jan - July and September - December, or it may be easier to set it up Jan - Nov.

Each session attended in August should be paid for individually at £4 per session.

The Annual Membership Fee (which includes ASA and London Region fees) for 2013 will remain the same as it has done for the past few years. Swimmers under 16 years of age pay £50 per year with a reduction of £5 per sibling (up to a maximum of 3 siblings) off this fee. Swimmers who are over 16 years old pay £12.50 per year. Swimmers who are taught in the teaching pool are exempt from this fee.

The Annual Membership Fee must be paid by cash or cheque at your child's first swimming session in January. Fiona at Cheam and Anne at Morden/Banstead will collect this fee.
