A Message to All Members from Club Chairman Shirley Wigley

"Because of an extended period of low-level ill health I have regretfully decided that I must stand down as chairman of Boldmere Swimming Club.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the three years that I have served in this role and have been proud to be associated with what I consider to be the finest amateur sports club in the Midlands. I would particularly like to thank the people who have worked tirelessly with me to manage our club and ensure the efficient day to day running of high-quality sessions and events for our swimmers. Fortunately for the club, we have a loyal group of able volunteers who endlessly give their support. You are too many to mention, but you all know who you are.

"I have now been involved with Boldmere Swimming Club for almost twenty years, and intend to continue to work for the club in the future. You will undoubtedly see me on poolside in the future."
