Guildford City say goodbye to Sue Barney, Head of The Academy

Posted by with No Comments

Guildford City said goodbye to Sue Barney, Head of The Academy on Friday night at the Spectrum. After a brilliant Splash Night organised by the Academy reps the swimmers said farewell with a ‘kick off’ in the teaching pool!

Sue was overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness shown to her by the committee, coaches, parents and swimmers. Richard Garfield gave Sue a warm welcome speech and allowed the swimmers to express their appreciation with a big Splash in the pool.



This follows the Academy Gala at the end of November brilliantly organised by Susie Lacey and our Academy reps Claire Hemming and Ruth Smith where the Sue Barney Junior Sprint Cup was awarded for the first time and the swimmers and parents stayed for a special ‘Thank You’ at the end of the gala.
