Orion at 50
Orion Swimming Club is looking to bring together current and previous members in its celebration of its 50 year anniversary next year. During these years, thousands of people ages 4-18 have learned, improved and competed in the pool.
To celebrate the continuing success and growth of the club, there will be a celebration evening on the 9th September 2017 and the club is also planning a swimming event and hoping to raise money for a swimming legacy for less advantaged kids in the area. Visit and 'like' the Facebook page on www.facebook.com/2017orion50th if you are interested in meeting old or current coaches, friends and team mates.
Or if you leave your contact details via website https://orionat50.club then we can keep you informed of all events related to the year ahead
No parking at King Edwards
The school has provided details about the dates on which there will be no parking for Orion members. The Chief Master has specifically stated that under no circumstances should any person park their vehicle on the double yellow lines throughout the site, at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre and most definitely not on the grass verges.
We hope you will take note and act accordingly to maintain the good relationship we have with the school.
There will be no parking anywhere on the school site for Orion on the following dates:
Car Parking permits
There is no Orion parking at KE girls school and no parking on KE site without a permit.
Karen and Hazel have done a great job of giving out the permits so far and we will continue to pass them on to you all asap. All help with that greatly received.
If you have not sent in your reg number + surname then you will need to do that on an excel sheet ASAP so I can forward to the school.
