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

Meet Hayley our Deputy Welfare Officer

My name is Hayley and I am the deputy Welfare Officer for Kingfishers Swimming Club. I am also a parent of three boys who swim at the club. When I’m not at the pool I can usually be found on the side of a football pitch watching the boys play for three different grassroots football teams!

I currently work for our family business in a HR capacity. I have previously worked locally as a social worker. I am often at the pool and local galas and can be approached at any time should you have any concerns or comments to make. Kingfishers will continually strive for the club to be a safe and rewarding space for all the children and young people who swim for us.

If you have any concerns to discuss with Hayley but need make contact urgently you can contact her via welfare02@kingfishersswimmingclub.org.uk
