The Swim England National Awards 2019 seeks to recognise the success of clubs and individuals throughout the country. Each of the eight Swim England regions select winners from nine awards categories, with the eight winners for each category forming the shortlist for the Swim England National Awards, with all regional winners invited to attend the ceremony in Birmingham.

Ian got his first taste of swimming in Penrith, Cumbria at the old Frenchfield pool, on the river Eamont, aged 14, and swam competitively for many years at Penrith Swimming Club.

He has held many roles within Penrith Swimming Club and is currently President and Chairman. He still coaches three nights a week at the age of 79. 

In 2005/06 Ian was only the second Penrith man to be President of the Cumbria Amateur Swimming Association and is still a member of the county Executive Cmmittee. 

 

In 2002 he was awarded with a service cross for amassing more than 20 years’ service for the RLSS (Royal Lifesaving Society) having been heavily involved with Penrith Lifesaving Club until it disbanded.

Swim The Eden - bursaries


Swim_the_Eden_810_456_80_s_c1
   The Eden Swim project was completed by brothers Jack, Calum and Robbie Hudson in August 2015 when they swam 90 miles down down the River Eden to raise funds in aid of the Swimming Trust.
 
  The swim took 9 days with the brothers swimming up to 12 miles a day.
  They clambered down waterfalls, over weirs and rocks to become the first people ever to
   swim the length of the river.

  The swim was in aid of the Swimming Trust who have been in discussion with the
  brothers and have decided that the best use for this income would be to focus it on
  improving swimming teaching in Cumbria. All the money will be put back into swimming
  through setting up a bursary scheme in Cumbria to help more swimming teachers
  gain their level 2 qualification.


The bursary scheme has been funded by £3000 from the 'Swim the Eden' project , £1000
from the Swimming Trust and £1000 from Cumbria ASA, which was launched on
October 1st 2016. Further contributions may be made in the future. These funds will be
                                                                                                                           'ring fenced' by Cumbria ASA and will not be available for any purposes other than to
                                                                                                                           assist the training of level 2 and above teachers/coaches. Details of the bursary scheme are
                                                                                                                           available from Martin Tickner.
