Celebrations as remarkable Rita turns 80

Grantham's longest serving coach was showered with flowers and gifts last week as the club helped her celebrate her 80th birthday.
Club chair Sarah Raistrick and secretary Zoe Lewis also presented Rita Baxter with a special lifetime achievement award from the club.
Rita joined Grantham Swimming Club more than 60 years ago - when training took place in Dysart Park's outdoor swimming pool!

ASA teaching award for Issy and Hannah

Senior swimmers Isobel Schofield and Hannah Berwick have taken the sport to another level by gaining their ASA Level One Teaching Aquatics Award.
The duo devote large amounts of their spare time to coaching the club's younger swimmers - Hannah at the Monday night sessions and Issy on a Thursday evening. Support from volunteers like these is crucial for the club's success and we are very grateful for their commitment and time.
Congratulations girls!
