Chorley Marlins are happy to express their thanks to Procter & Gamble and in particular Simon Bourne for their generous donation that has allowed us to purchase our new swimming training aid, an underwater camera. Not any camera though a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition non the less, offering quality underwater footage for our coaches to help hone the swimmers finely tuned skills.
A big thank you from all our swimmers and coaches alike THANK YOU
Chorley Marlins Micro League team were treated to lunch by their new sponsor Frankie & Benny’s. Head Coach of Marlins, Mary Parkinson, was presented with new t-shirts and caps for the team branded with the Frankie & Benny’s logo.
Area Marketing Coordinator of Frankie & Benny’s Jacqueline Fletcher “Said Frankie & Benny’s are delighted to sponsor Marlins and support the team”. After lunch the Micro League team headed off to Southport to compete in the 2nd round of the competition and finished in a very credible 2nd place. Well Done all :)
Just so that everyone knows the only training sessions that are cancelled are as follows:

We've only just been informed from the leisure center that on both Good Friday and Easter Monday they intend to close at 4pm.
It is a requirement that anybody who helps out with the children at the club, poolside or otherwise must have a current CRB certificate. If you require one then please organize a time to see our new welfare officer Suzanne Highcock.

EDIT: In December 2012 the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) merged to form the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The DBS now issue disclosure certificates The ASA is committed to ensuring that all children who participate in ASA activities should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be safeguarded from harm.
