Nottinghamshire ASA would like to pay tribute to the County’s volunteers: “Volunteers’ Week is the perfect platform for Nottinghamshire ASA to say ‘thank you’ to our hard-working volunteers. Most of us like to feel like we’re part of something and volunteers are no exception, the better they are treated, the better they will feel about donating their time to your club and County.”
“Many of our volunteers will be coaching, officiating, team managing, chaperoning and marshaling swimmers at events across the County and beyond. We hope you will join us in publicly thanking our aquatic volunteer workforce and their dedication to the sport.”

Paralympic Gold Medallist Ollie Hynd is all set to make the trip to Buckingham Palace on Friday 17th May to collect his MBE from a member of the Royal Family (yet to be confirmed). The 18yr old from Kirkby In Ashfield will travel down to London with his family and Coach, which will be the icing on the cake following his triumph at the Paralympic Games in 2012, where he took the full set of Medals, Gold, Silver and Bronze, to become the most successful Great Britain Male swimmer at the games.
The Gold medal performance came in the SM8 category 200m Ind Medley, in a new European Record, the Silver in the S8 category 400m Freestyle and the Bronze in the 100m Backstroke in the same category, a staggering performance when you consider it was Ollie’s debut at the Games, and had been inspired by his brother Sam Hynd, who took the Gold medal in the 400m Freestyle in Beijing in 2008, with Ollie watching in the stands. Ollie’s Gold medal was also celebrated by the Royal mail, with a Minted Stamp for his achievement and the painting of a Gold Post Box in Kirkby to honour his performance, he then received the news that he was to be awarded the MBE in the queens new years honours in December 2012.
Ollie plans to receive and celebrate his award by wearing a pair of Gold Shoes designed by Peter Bullock (fine shoe maker) who awarded Ollie with the footwear following his achievements in London 2012.
Notts ASA are again holding their Summer Gala at Beechdale Baths on Sunday 21st July.
