Chairman’s Blog – Col Simmons
‘Even though we are not back swimming, yet, there is still plenty going on behind the scenes. With this in mind I thought I would share an insight into the Chairs commitments over the next week or so. Keeping up to date with the necessary and relevant information is important to us at Kingfishers. On Sunday I completed an on-line safeguarding course designed to bring me up to date with the ‘digital age’ with regard to club members. Yesterday I joined with Vicky to attend a teams meeting with Every One active to plan the return to swimming. Our monthly teams Committee meeting is this Thursday evening, the main discussions will be around membership, finance, open water restart, open meets and what courses are available to continue to train our coaches, helpers and volunteers. Next Tuesday I will attend a virtual teams meeting with North East Swimming to discuss the role of a club chair during the lock down and beyond. Along with the other committee members we are planning to be ready when Boris nods his head Swimming’s way.
