As mentioned in our previous news article, please find the details of Anne Morton’s funeral:
Friday 13th February 2015
If you are wanting to attend the funeral could you please contact either Wendy Coles or Kate Bull as soon as possible so arrangements can be made and we are aware of numbers.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Anne Morton passed away yesterday.
Anne will be remembered in the county by most as a very friendly and bubbly character but very efficient official for Nottinghamshire. Anne was a lady that was always willing to help out at our events and events run by others in and out of county. Anne was until the last couple of years the Nottinghamshire’s Officials Officer, which many of you will probably know her through completing your officials training and getting your books signed.
Our thoughts and sympathy is with Anne’s two children and as soon as we get details of funeral arrangements we will let you all know via the website.
The provisional Meet timings for the 2015 Winter Gala have now been published on the website.

An embargo has been lifted today so I would like to share the news that I will be in the new Kuoni TV advert this Christmas. It is airing on ITV Christmas Eve during Skyfall and features me doing synchronised swimming-ish! It’s been a whirlwind opportunity and Kuoni has already been making reference to synchro in their press releases today and will be plugging the new synchro team (the Bramcote AquaStars) in their forthcoming press as this is their big 2015 campaign.
Keep an eye out for it.
