Kingfishers SC – Swimming suspended with immediate effect (18/03/2020)
We have had a fantastic response from our poolside and dryside helpers and could run training sessions. A massive thank you to all who have selflessly offered to volunteer their time.
However the Club trustees and committee have decided to suspend all swimming until further notice.
The commitee will meet with E.A. and work out a pathway going forward.
Please bear with us while we work out the financial impact this will have on you as parents and swimmers, and as us as a club.
Please all stay safe and ‘wash those hands’

First Kingfishers Club Night After Summer Break – Wednesday 4th September
Welcome back everyone after our summer break. Please be reminded of the following changes:
- Polite reminder that any members that have moved to secondary school in September will be automatically moved from 7-8pm to 8-9pm on Wednesday night if they aren’t already swimming at this time. We have to make these moves to allow new younger swimmers early water time when joining our club.
- New monthly charges will come into effect from September 1st with a small increase of monthly fees. This has had to be increased due to the lack of fund raising activities. Hopefully we can encourage some volunteers to fill some of our club volunteer vacancies in the months ahead. If you can help please let the front desk know any little support or time you can give will be much appreciated.
- 1 Session per week £13
- 2 Session per week £26
- 3/4 Hours per week £39
- 5 Hours plus per week £64
Many Thanks Your Committee
