In line with the latest guidance from Government and Swim England’s consequence advice, training has now been suspended following the closure of Gateshead Council pools.

All parents have been emailed information re GAW monthly fees.  Please can you take the time to read this.  If you have not received an email please get in touch with your squad rep.  The letter can also be found on Club Organiser.

Message from Dave Low (N&D Championships Manager)

Dear All

It has been brought to my attention that photographs from the first weekend have been posted by some Clubs on social media which clearly identify swimmers from other Clubs either on the blocks or preparing to race.  Some of these photographs show swimmers where their parents have not given photography consent and as such should not be published on social media.  This is a safeguarding issue.

In the circumstances could I please ask all Clubs to ensure that in future photographs of this nature (where other swimmers are included) are either not taken or that appropriate edits are applied to ensure the identity of other swimmers are hidden.

In addition could any Clubs which have published or shared photographs from the first weekend please review these urgently and remove any which show swimmers from other Clubs or where consent has not been obtained.

Thank you for co-operation in this important matter.

Kind regards

Dave Low

N&D Championships Manager
