20 years of work praised by Burnham-On-Sea swim group
Burnham-On-Sea's Disability Swimming Group delivered a surprise
to long-serving volunteer organisers John and Barbara Lovett this
Committee member Paul Parkin presented a glass shield and a certificate
to them to show members' appreciation for the couple's ongoing
and dedicated support over the past 20 years.
The couple thanked the group for the presentation, but John added:
"We do appreciate what has been done today, but it isnt
just the two of us. The club depends on a team of volunteers to
help our members and support the organisation and sustainability
of the clubs existence."
The group meets every Wednesday morning at Burnham Swim and Sports
Academy in Berrow Road and caters for the whole of Sedgemoor.
Short or long term membership is available and anyone with a disability
who is interested in benefiting from swimming should call 01278
