Message from the CEO

Sam Fulling

It is with regret that I inform you that we will be losing our excellent Head of Junior Programmes, Sarah Standen, in the next month. Despite only working with her for a short time, I have been impressed with Sarah's knowledge, enthusiasm and positive attitude. It is never easy to say goodbye to good people, but Sarah is moving down to Falmouth to be with her daughter and she goes with our very best wishes and with the knowledge that she is welcome back any time.
Below is a brief message from Sarah and I hope that you will all wish her well in her future endeavours;
"I am really proud to have been a part of the Penguins team and feel privileged to have worked with so many athletes, coaches and  managers that I greatly admire and from whom I have learnt so much.

As a coach I am often talking about the potential I see in the individuals I work with. Well right now, I have that 'goosebumps feeling' about what lies ahead for the club as a whole. I sincerely believe this club is on the pathway to greatness and I am rather gutted not to be a part of that journey.

I am thankful for the opportunities you have given me during my time here. I owe a great deal to WCSPC.
I wish you good luck and continued success for the future.
We will begin the difficult task of replacing Sarah immediately so that there is minimal disruption. Meanwhile, Sarah will have completed all the administration in advance for our Learn to Swim Programme to start as usual in September.
Best wishes
