It was the Swimming Club’s Presentation Night last night and you can see all the medals and trophies waiting to be presented to all the swimmers.
Youngest getting one of the medals he won from Chris, one of our Coaches who retired last night after fifteen years with the Club.
Eldest receiving a trophy from our Club President, Frank Mansey, who is a founder member of the Club and still going strong after 42 years in the Club!
Youngest receiving another trophy from President Frank
This is Eldest’s Cup we have given to the Club to mark his three years as Captain.
This is also another cup we gave to the Club a few years ago.
Eldest’s last job as Captain to award the Captains Sheild for the swimmer who the Captains feel has given the most during Galas this year.
It was then announced who the new Club Captains for the coming year are and to our absolute pride and delight Youngest was named Boys Club Captain! So Eldest has handed the mantel over to his brother!
A very proud and delighted Youngest with his new Club Shirt (with DH in the background talking as usual!!!!!)
Girlfriend and Eldest before the evening began.
Chris giving his speech on his retirement.
Chris, his wife Liz and DH with his leaving gifts. We are all sad to see him leave.
We had a great night, if long (!), and Youngest has just about come down off the ceiling now in his delight. This morning Baby Evalyn and parents are calling in for lunch and to swap presents and then the Boys are off for their hair cuts and then tonight Nottingham to see the lights. More pictures tomorrow.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend
Hugs, Susie x
