Club AGM 2020

On Monday 17th November the Club held its annual AGM, the event was well attended and caused a slight reorganisation of positions in the Boscombe Committee.

For the Committee for 2021 we have a few changes with Danni Callahan as Vice-Captain, Tim Fudge as Vice-Chairman and James Clarke as Equipment Officer. Holly Cameron has also been added as Under 18s Representative.

We welcome you all to the committee and wish you the best in your roles in the coming year.

Waiting List Suspended

Sadly at this point in time Boscombe Lifeguards are closing their waiting list for those wishing to join the club. This is due to an already lengthy list of interested participants; together with restricted pool use.

Details of those that have already enquired will continue to be held and as space becomes available, will be contacted.

As soon as we are able to start accommodating the current interested parties, we will re-open the waiting list.

We apologise for having to take this measure and thank you for your understanding.

Club AGM 2019

On Monday 11th November the Club held its annual AGM, the event was well attended and we welcome some new faces on to the Boscombe Committee as well as thank some officers standing down.

Joining the Committee for 2020 we welcome Morgan Thomas Club Captain, Danni Callahan Training Officer, Jeanette Francis Rookie Training Officer, Michelle Knight Membership Officer, Fiona Callahan Joining Janet on Fundraising, KevCallahan IT Rep, Chris Grant Welfare Officer. We welcome you all to the committee and wish you the best in your roles in the coming year.

We also have several officers standing down after many years of service to the committee. Our thanks to Nick and Hannah Sparrowhawk. Between them, they have helped rebuild the Club from the days under the pier where it was thought the club would fold, to the Club it is today. A huge thanks to you both and all the best in the coming months.

And finally…..

Although Nick has taken a step back from the Captain’s duties, he has accepted a nomination to become Club President this will allow him to continue to be part of the development of the club as we look to the future.

End of another Season

We have now come to the end of another successful season with many events, safety covers, competitions and of course training. A big thank you to all those who have helped at the above events, the club grows from strength to strength but this can not be down without everyone’s input.

A big Thankyou and now to some down time ready for 2020 🙂
