Jim and Sue have supported the Club over the years, Jim in particular being the face of Club Nights at St Augustine's Pool on Tuesday and Friday nights where the Penguins had full use of the pool for personal survival, life guarding, adult swimming, water polo etc etc. Jim was always on the door, keeping things organised.
Jim was also a trained official (timekeeper) for galas. Their sons, Andrew and Jonathan, were swimmers.
