Message from our treasurer

As you know, we have now entered a new tax year and I find that there are always changes to be made but for me, I think that sits very well with the Easter experience and the feeling of spring in the air. Sad as I am, I use Easter as a time to go through bank statements, check direct debits and generally spring clean my finances. I always find that there are things to do. One such thing I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you all of are the new fees for Bramcote Swimming Club. The reason for this increase is that our pool hire costs have, again, gone up above inflation and, as a swimming club, this is a cost pretty much outside of our control.
The new fees for all learn to swim programmes is £33, the new fee for junior core, inter core and senior core is £38, the new fee for junior performance, inter performance and senior performance is £43 and for synchro, the new fee is £40. Of course, there is still a 50% discount for any third swimmer applied to the lowest rate and the fourth and subsequent swimmer gets a 100% discount, again on the lowest rate.
As these payments are not made by direct debit but by standing order, we as a club cannot make these changes. You need to do them yourself but if you have online banking, this is very easy.
I hope you have enjoyed your Easter break, or perhaps you are more like me and long for the quiet of the office. At any rate, enjoy the sun such as it is.
George Holmer,

Introduction to our new treasurer

My name is George Holmer and from February I am the treasurer for Bramcote Swimming Club. I am also vice chair of the club and chair of the swim committee which is the sub-committee dealing with galas, open meets, teams, squads etc.

I have two daughters swimming with the club, one in group 3 and one in group 7 so I am still waiting for the big wins but I am sure they will come… Outside the club, I work as a freelance legal and financial translator and look after our six kids and house as well as a crazy springer spaniel. We bought a house in Chilwell 2013 and before that, we were in Bramcote for 18 months and before that, six months in Aspley. I am originally from Sweden and my wife from Sheffield but we both studied at Reading and then lived in Worcester, Belgium, Sweden and Kenya, were my wife taught Latin and Greek of all things. Here, she taught in Derby but left teaching last year and works in Calverton in credit control these days. We are now pretty settled here in Nottingham and with the kids in English Martyr’s in Long Eaton and The Becket in West Bridgford, the kids have told us we are not allowed to move again.

At the moment, I am dealing with arrears and monthly subs which, unfortunately, are going up from April. Please remember to update your standing order and while you are at it, if you are paying for more than one swimmer, it would really help me if you made separate payments with separate references for each child. I realise how annoying this can be your end but if you have ever done any cash allocation, you probably know how much it can help.

If you have any questions you can contact me on
