At the AGM on 30th November, a change was accepted to the weekly fees payable by Nippers. From 1st January, the weekly fee will increase to £2.00, but Nippers will be able to pay their fees termly and will receive a discount for doing this. For those paying termly, the fee will be based upon the current charge of £1.50 per week.

We hope that the termly fee will have a number of advantages:

Enable the club to have the financial security of knowing the fees will cover the costs of the pool, thereby helping us to keep fees low
Speed up the register process
Enable the club to manage its numbers better
So, the fees for term one will be:

I’m sure you will agree that this remains excellent value for money – swimming lessons are generally around £4.50 per half an hour everywhere else.

Payments by cheque or cash for weekly fees are both fine and should be paid to Catherine Eustace, who has taken over the register from Tina.
