Club Committee

Home // About us // Club Committee

The Executive Committee runs the club. It meets regularly, with other committees reporting developments from their own committee meetings.

The current executive committee structure consists of three executive officers; those being the chairman, club secretary and treasurer. In additional there are three representatives from each of the club sites, Ross, Leominster and Hereford. Finally, there are also the positions of President and Vice-President on the executive, but these are non-voting roles.

Each role is based upon a three year term, with new members being elected to the executive committee at the Annual General Meeting each June.

James Cockroft

Club Chairman

Like many other volunteers, James first got involved in the City of Hereford Swimming Club through his children, with two girls still swimming competitively at the club. James is a firm believer that time passes quicker volunteering and supporting the club, rather than sitting and watching from the side lines - and would encourage anyone who would like to follow suit to do so, as he's a great example that you don't need to be an ex-Olympian swimmer to help out - even if its only a little bit!

Lynne Jones

Club Secretary



Fay Henderson

Club Treasurer

Fay Henderson has been our treasurer since 2011, she runs the club shop, does the swimming club compliance checks and club desk. Because she doesn't do enough already she also sits on the executive committee. Also a swimming parent, her main goal is to sit down to one family meal a week. She has failed so far!

Norman Fincham

Club President

Norman started his involvement with swimming when his eldest daughter joined Taurus 82 swimming club in 1982, and somehow he is still involved 34 years later! Norman has carried out many duties in swimming, including committees, officiating, team managing and coaching and is still Club President and supports the Club in any way that he can.

Davina Tully

Club Vice-President

Over 20 years involvement with the Club and was previously Club Chairman for a number of years. Davina got involved to support her three children who were then 9, 7 and 5 years old. They are now in their 20's, and one of those (Charlotte) is still involved with the club as a coach

Richard Bilbao

Coach Liaison Officer

Rich initially got involved with volunteering by assisting with marshaling at galas. In 2014 he became a member of the committee and has since been involved in the preparation of press releases, can very often be found driving the minibus to Arena league, has team managed at numerous galas poolside and has most recently taken on the position of Coach Liaison

Wayne Taylor

Leominster Committee Member

Wayne has been involved with the Club since 1997, when his eldest daughter starting swimming with the club. Wayne decided to help poolside at first, rather than sitting in spectator area getting bored and has become more and more involved as time has progressed.
