Gabriel chops the locks for charity

Gabriel Oyaide-Nicholls (Nottingham Leander and NOVA Centurion swimmer) is well known in the Nottinghamshire swimming community not only for his swimming but for his amazing hair.

Before the Hair Cut

On Saturday 2nd March, to raise money for a charity very close to the family, Gabriel was sponsored by lots of people inside and outside the swimming world to have all of his locks chopped off. Gabriel went to Flint’s barbers in the city with some of his swimming friend for support and made a celebration out of it.

After the chop

Altogether Gabriel has raised a total of £854.55 which is a massive success and way over his initial target of £500. Lisa (Gabriel’s mum) has said she is “extremely proud of him”, along with all of his friends in Nottinghamshire swimming.

Christine Greaves – Sutton-in-Ashfield SC

It is with deep regret that we have to inform you of Christine Greaves death. Chris had a massive stroke last week and despite 3 brain operations, she was unable to recover and sadly passed away in Queens Medical Centre with her beloved husband Gren and her family by her side.

Chris and Gren devoted over 30 years each to Sutton in Ashfield Swimming Club and they are the reason that the Club is here and so successful today. Chris was the Chair of this Club for many, many years before handing over to Andy Quinn at the clubs 2013 Annual General Meeting.

Put simply Chris was an incredible and really formidable lady. In her capacity as Chair she saw this Club through some really difficult times which I know impacted on her personally. Her ability to guide the Club so excellently over so many years is true testament to her strength of character and her determination to succeed. Chris in her time as Chair ensured there was a long term vision for the Club which would see it continue to grow and so her planning and budget management was always with an eye to the future. The Club continue to benefit from Christine’s vision today.

From Andy Quinn:

Chris was so much more than just the Chair of the Club for so many years. She voluntarily performed a number of other duties including becoming a qualified official, coach and was the Girls Team Manager for the vast majority of her 30 or so years with the Club. I can not imagine how many hours Christine devoted to our Club over the years. I will be forever grateful for the time she spent as the main coach to both my own daughters as they progressed through the lanes at Sutton. The Team Manager role alone is not an easy one at the best of times. Selecting the teams, ensuring selected swimmers are available and then managing them all on poolside on a Saturday night can be quite stressful but Chris loved this role and had such a fantastic way with all her swimmers. Both Gren and Chris were made Honorary lifetime members of our Club in recognition of all they did for us.

Both Gren and Chris like so many of us that now volunteer for the Club got involved in swimming as a result of their daughters, Wendy and Sally joining the Club when they were very young. Both were talented swimmers and made mum Chris very proud of their achievements with Wendy going all the way to representing Great Britain in the pool.

No matter how much time Chris devoted to swimming and our Club she always had a higher priority and quite rightly that priority was her family. Chris was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandma and my heart felt condolences and prayers are with her family members right now as they all struggle to come to terms with her passing.

Christine’s Funeral service will take place at St Mary’s Church Sutton in Ashfield on Wednesday 10th October at 12.00 followed by Cremation at Mansfield Crematorium at 13.15. We will then return to the Staff of life in Sutton to share memories and raise a glass to Christine. All will be welcome
