The Swim England West Midlands Regional Staff and Management Board are pleased to finally launch the much anticipated 4 year strategy, having been developing this since the end of 2022, ensuring consultation took place with key stakeholders and members throughout the last 18 months, identifying the key needs of our members and clubs and ensuring the strategy is reflective of that need. The Region has taken some time to ensure the strategy is aligned with Swim England Nationally and has completed a review and restructure of the staff team, to ensure the team in place is best positioned to support clubs in realising the objectives of the strategy.

7th January 2024

Please can we all join together in congratulating Mr Ray Evans on his recent award. The Worcester county Board have decided to create a Long Service Award for current volunteers who had served both Club and County for a minimum of 30 years. Ray Evans is the first recipient of this award. 

Ray became a member of Warley WASPS in 1983, then becoming an Official in 1985, a position he still retains to day. He became the Club Chairman in 1985 and remained in position until beginning of this year, when he retired. 

It was always a pleasure to work along side Ray, quite possibly the best Chair the club ever had, and oversaw our huge revival and succeses over the past 14 years or so.

Now a huge asset to Halesowen Swimming Club, where he still referees and officates as well as current duties for Worcester County Swimming Association.

Ray is also our Honorary President at Millennium WASPS, where both Ray and Janet are always welcome. This award is the very least Ray deserves for many years of dedicated hard work for club, County, Region and for the local community.
