It was the Club’s Presentation Evening last night and amongst the many recipients of awards the most memorable was Bronwen Poole’s ‘Volunteer of the Year’ presented in recognition of her unstinting support to the Club for over 30 years.
Bronwen’s commitment to the Club is unsurpassed and she continues to help at weekly coaching sessions and regularly travels the length & breadth of Wales and England to officiate at swimming galas in her capacity as a Swim Wales qualified official.
Presented by Christine our retiring Treasurer, the award is well deserved and Bronwen’s unselfish commitment an inspiration to us all.
Amongst the swimmers, the trophy winners for 2015 included Morgan Bowen (Best Performance) for his butterfly which has culminated this year in his selection to represent Swim Wales whilst the Best Newcomer Award went to Dyfrig Jones. Keira McVeagh who has developed greatly this year deservedly received the Most Improved Award. The Club also recognized the commitment of its swimmers and this year’s Most Dedicated trophy went to Elain Owen for her continual hard work and effort at training and consequent much deserved improvement at competition.
The Swimmers Swimmer Awards, voted on by the swimmers themselves went to Jordan Lewis & Carwyn Owen.
Overall age group winners from the Club Gala contested a few weeks ago were Kimberley Vaughan & Jack Lewis (9yrs); Medi Lewis & Deiniol Owen (10/11); Aaliyah Robins & Tomos Weaver (12/13); Ellen Jones & Lloyd Davies (14/15) and Kate Jones & Billy Hunt (16yrs+).
The evening finished with a buffet and disco, a great fun event even if it did finish rather abruptly with the arrival of the Fire Brigade!
