Meet our club welfare officer Adrian Vipond

Adrian can often be found around the poolside & on the balcony.  He is around so that parents have chance to speak to him face to face if they have any concerns or issues.
If you have any concerns to discuss with Adrian but need make contact urgently you can contact him via welfare@kingfishersswimmingclub.org.uk
Kingfishers is a SwimMark Accredited Club with Swim England and Sports England.  The club follows the guidance in Wavepower for child safeguarding, the Swim England (ASA) Code of Ethics and Codes of Conduct.
