VACANCY
Jill Ramsey has been the LASA 'Trophy Lady' for more than 20 years and sadly is now 'hanging up her medals'.  LASA is therefore looking for one or more individuals to take on this volunteer role. The role briefly involves the purchasing of medals and trophies for the the LASA Age Groups & County Championships and other LASA competitions, liasing with swimmers and clubs to ensure trophies are correctly engraved, keeping records of trophies and medals awarded, collecting in all trophies in readiness for the next competition, attending all LASA Competitions to 'man' the trophy table and hand out the appropriate award to the approriate swimmer/team/club.  Jill will be available to mentor all new recruits through the process and provide them with the benefit of her vast experience and knowledge.  

If you are interested in taking on these responsibilities please contact  the LASA Secretary at secretary@leicestershireasa.org
For more information on the role please contact Jill at trophy@leicestershireasa.org

LASA would like to take this opportunity to thank Jill for her support and excellent service over the years and to wish her well in her retirement from the role.
Jill is not giving up all her links with swimming and LASA and you will no doubt continue to see her around the pool at events.
