Lismore Workers getting in the swim

Charlotte2-LWSC-The Lismore Workers Swimming Team is lining up again ready for a fantastic 2013–14 season.

The club aims to follow on from their very successful 2012–13 season, which saw them host the NSW Regional Country Swimming Titles in cyclonic weather at their home pool, the Memorial Baths.

The LWST club hosted the first of the Far North Coast Spring Swimming carnivals at the Lismore Memorial Baths  last Sunday.  The development carnival included events in all strokes, covering distances of 50m and 100m, and offered a 200m in the Individual Medley and Freestyle disciplines.

LWST Head Coach Gary Dardengo says it’s been a busy start to the season.

‘We started with a mini non-competitive carnival to be held at the Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre for our learn-to-swim athletes recently,’ he said.

‘This is where our up-and-coming swimming stars showcase newly learned skills, which they are so proud of.  Club training started with the opening of the Lismore Memorial Baths on September 9.

‘There are some great athletes coming through the ranks and we have a fantastic family-friendly club supporting them all,’ said Gary.

‘This will make for an enjoyable competitive season ahead.’

New members are always welcome. For information please contact club Coach Gary Dardengo on 0417 222 058.

A note from the editorial team

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
