Louth Swimming Club recent held their Club Championships Presentatation Night at the Town Hall, Louth. A capacity crowd filled the ballroom and a fantastic night was had by all. Special Guest Presenter – Mayor Councillor Fran Treanor and his wife Jayne.
Events Coordinator Charlotte Elliott- Wright and Club Secretary Katherine Billington did a stunning job with the logistics involved in organising an event of this magnitude, surrounded of course by the team of Coaches/Officials and poolside assistants.
Club Chairman Bob Wells compared the evening and thanked all the poolside teams for their passion and commitment also the tireless committee and everyone involved in the clubs continued progression.
This year events produced a staggering amount of Personal Best Times and new or improved County Qualifying Times a fabulous achievement by all the swimmers.
The evening’s events (Organised new girl Lisa Cunningham & her Fundraising team) started off with food – roasts of Beef, Pork & Turkey with sausage & stuffing, vegetarian options, salads and of course the puddings, then the presentations, followed by fundraising raffle draw, culminating with a disco.
The evening ran like clockwork leaving ample time for everyone to let off steam on the dance floor. Head Kate Thompson, Charlotte Elliott-Wright and Dawn Waring, Lisa Barnett & Jen Heydon made the presentations run to time despite Camera & Public Address issues.
