After what has been a fantastic County Championships for Winsford Swimming Club, I would like to thank everyone for their outstanding performances, the swimmers have done us proud. The amount of personal best times achieved and Regional times grained, is staggering, like I said before, this has to be the best ever set of results of any County Championship I have attended.
The announcement of my retirement along with these results, has made me feel sad about leaving this club at the end of August, but I know, I'll leaving a club in great shape and in excellent hands. I owe a lot to Dan for his help and coaching ability to enable our swimmers to perform to the best of their ability on the day, cheers Dan, you did a great job. I would also like to take this this opportunity to thank all our marshals, without their help, the job of organising the swimmers for competing would have been a nightmare. Once again, thank you all - Dave

The club membership fees have increased by £2 per month per swimmer WEF 1st March 2014 the increase in fees was explained and agreed at the club AGM .
