A: Spending time with my family,

A: My parents, especially my dad (Dave Cracknell) who without him I wouldn’t have been able to travel around the country and compete in the long distance circuit. He was always my biggest fan. He also became a role model to Kingfishers and I hope to follow in his footsteps. Also a special thank you to

Maureen Dickinson

for her support and words of encouragement during my swimming years.

Q: What annoys you and what makes you happy about Kingfishers Swimming Club?
A: I wish that more parents would volunteer to help to ensure the future running of the club.
It is lovely to see previous swimmers returning to the club with their own children. Kingfishers has always had the reputation of being a family friendly club.
