Essential information

As members of NASCH we are obliged to hold a certain amount of information about everybody, including volunteers. This means you have to give us some personal details about yourself.

Apart from the obvious, i.e. needing your name, address and phone number so we can get in touch, we have to have know your age, whether you take any medication, are in any way infirm and/or if you have any allergies.

Also, we must have someone to contact in an emergency, plus in the event of an accident or illness we might have to make contact with a doctor or hospital on your behalf. The information you give us is confidential and only the officers (chairman, treasurer and secretary) have access to the records.

For insurance purposes we are obliged to hold a fully completed application form for each member and helper. If you fail to return your form to us your actions could put us in breach of the insurance company’s terms and conditions. What’s more, CWAC will not allow us to use the Arena without valid insurance.


Want to volunteer?

As a swimming coach or helper:

If you want to work with the swimmers in the water, you may need to take a DBS check (paid for by the club) and have no convictions for offences against a person. There are no vacancies for helpers at the moment, although we have been in need of a swimming coach since our previous one, Tony Howley, passed away in 2008.

As a committee member:

Currently, our committee consists of 4 members and we meet on a formal basis twice a year, so the commitment is not huge. If you would like to join us, speak to Barbara, our chairman or a committee member:

  • Harry Mytton (Chairman)
  • Diane Rooney (secretary) – email shown on the Contact Us page.
  • Lorraine Booth (treasurer).
  • Barbara Kelly¬†(child protection officer).
  • Diana Snelson (social officer).
