There is a change to the times we need to meet at and leave Wellington on Saturday. We need to meet at Wellington pool at 15:15 and leave at 15:30. My apologies for this change.
Those highlighted in red below are not travelling on the bus so please meet us at Rugby at 17:30. The address of the pool is:
The Queens Diamond Jubilee Centre
Bruce Williams Way
I will assume all others will be travelling on the coach.
So far the only adults who have booked a seat on the coach are:
I will assume that the officials / poolside support (if not listed above and with the exception of Andy Laycock who has contacted me) will also require a seat on the coach.
Would any other parents like a seat?
For those on the coach please pay on the day.
See you Saturday

Round 1 – Stafford, Saturday April 18th
FAO those who are going to the Diddy Gala in Stafford on Saturday
The general consensus is that most people want to make their own way to Stafford on Saturday for the Diddy Gala. So we will not meet at Wellington we will meet at Stafford Leisure Centre at 5.40. Directions below. Parking is available outside Stafford Leisure Centre and at Riverway. There may be a charge for parking.
The children need to be changed ready to start the warm up at 6pm for the races to start at 6.30pm.
For those that this is their first Diddy the club will provide you with a green club t-shirt and hat. This will be available tomorrow night at Wellington pool from Emma Scott-Gemmill who will be there 6.30 – 8pm.
Let me know if you will not be able to collect one and what size you need and we’ll make sure we bring some with us.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask Paul or myself.
Good luck and have fun!

Diddy Squad for 2015
Paul & I have now had chance to look at the recent time trials and times gained at the Forum earlier in the month.
The current Squad for the Diddy Galas is below and will also be posted on the website and notice board. The Squad is always subject to change and the children are encouraged to participate in events such as the time trails on 2nd May so we can keep evaluating performance.
It is expected that those named will be able to make all 3 galas and I would ask that you confirm (either by reply or ticking the list on the noticeboard) your child’s availability for all 3 dates ASAP and no later than 4th April.
As the 1st gala is in Stafford we will meet at Wellington Pool about 4 o’clock and car share there. Times will be confirmed nearer the date.
