Oldest Swimmer passes away

There is sadness at Gayton pool as we hear that Sue Dixon, one of our over 50’s Wednesday morning swimmers passed away on 8th November.  She was our oldest swimmer and the subject of a BBC news item in 2012 on the occasion of her 100th birthday celebration at the pool. She has not been able to swim recently but has visited her friends for their after swim social.

We send our condolences to her family and friends.
