Peter Holmes MBE has recently been honoured by Wolverhampton Swimming Club for being a member of the Club for 70 Years. This is a unique milestone in the history of the sport in Staffordshire.
Peter is also a Life Member of Staffordshire Amateur Swimming Association
Peter was presented with his own club polo shirt in frame with HOLMES and 70 on the back.
Wolverhampton Swimming Club also presented him with his own WSC blazer that you can see him putting on below.
The Club also recognised Margaret Holmes’ membership, as she has been a member of the club for 60 years too. She was presented with some flowers and a crystal cut vase.
Regarding the proposed change in the entry system for the County Championships a meeting of the Staffordshire ASA Executive Committee took place on 7 June 2016. Following lengthy discussions when the comments received from the Clubs were taken into consideration it was agreed that a formal proposal by the Swimming Committee would be put forward at the Annual General Meeting in December.
If it is approved by the required majority (two thirds of those present) it will be put into effect for the Championships in 2018
