Dates for your diary!

The last Land Training session before Christmas will be on Thursday 14 December – 7 pm until 8 pm.
The last Swim session will be on Monday 18 December.

The first Swim session of 2018 will be on Friday 5 January.


The first Land Training session will be on Thursday 11 January.

Whilst we are looking to maintain the same annual membership charges for 2018, due to circumstances beyond our Club control, we will have to raise the Swim fees from £3 per session to £3.50, and the Land Training fees from £2 per session to £2.50. We are sorry for having to impose this first increase since 2016.

Swimming Club 50th birthday!

July 2018 marks 50 golden years of our swimming club and it would be a crying shame not to celebrate this fantastic milestone!! If you can think of any events we can hold to mark this momentous occasion, could you please reply on here through the contacts page or speak to a committee member at any club night, preferably before the beginning of Sept 2017. All ideas will be run by the EPASC committee. Anyone who knows ex members / swimmers, please pass this message on as I’m sure they would be interested. Thanks.

Timekeeper’s course

It is planned that we run a course for club members who wish to qualify as British Swimming timekeepers, probably starting in September.

The course will consist of two theory sessions, each of approximately one hour, followed by a practical session, where members are required to time fifteen consecutive races. Sessions to be held in EPSV, during normal club time.

There is no charge for the course, but applicants must be members of EPASC, and will be adults, or swimmers age 14 years or over by the date of the first session.

Any member who is interested in this course is invited to sign the form which is available on the club table.

Communication from the Chief Constable and Police and Crime Commissioner

Everyone at Cheshire Constabulary is continuing to come terms with the devastating events that took place in Manchester.
As you will have seen reported in the media, we know that an explosion occurred in the foyer of the Manchester Arena, Manchester at around 10.30pm following the conclusion of a pop concert. Many of the attendees were leaving, and this has tragically led to the death of 22 people, with a further 59 reportedly injured. Our thoughts are very much with all those affected by this terrible incident.
Greater Manchester Police believe the attacker detonated an improvised explosive device. Our colleagues in Manchester are treating the incident as an act of terror, and we know they are working tirelessly to establish the full circumstances around this horrifying attack. We have provided operational assistance and are co-operating with any other requests for support.
You may be understandably concerned, particularly given the proximity of the attack to Cheshire. However, I want to reassure you that there is no information to suggest there is a specific threat to Cheshire, and we are doing everything in our power to ensure nothing like this occurs here.
Over the coming days, you will see more officers on our streets. Please do not be alarmed by this – they are there to provide a visible presence and offer reassurance and, as our community partners, you may be contacted by your local officers who will address any concerns you may have.
A dedicated Casualty Bureau has been set up by Greater Manchester Police – the number to call is 0800 096 0095. I’d also ask you to remain vigilant and report any concerns immediately, either via the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789321 or, in an emergency, dial 999.
