Lynn Fernandes – Hertsmere Flyers Swimming Club Chair 2004-2013

It is with sadness that Lynn has decided to resign from her position as Chair of HFSC with immediate effect.

Lynn has served on the HFSC Committee for over 10 years and has been Chair for all but 1 of those years.  In addition to the role of Chair she was the Club Statistician responsible for upkeep of members’ times, high points and Club records. For many years Lynn carried out the role of Gala Secretary along with the other two roles at the Club. If that was not enough for Lynn (or maybe she was a glutton for punishment!) between 2006 and 2008 she was Publicity Officer at Barnet Copthall and between 2004 and 2007 she was on the committee of the Herts Swimming League as both Treasurer and Results Officer.

Lynn also represented the Club on the Hertfordshire County Committee and was very involved in the running of the County Championships for some years. The years devoted to the Club by Lynn means that there is a wealth of experience and knowledge which will be hard to replace.

As well as giving up so much time to HFSC Lynn runs her own business and has worked tirelessly raising her family. When it comes to her family she has been ably supported by husband Mario and her children who all have the swimming bug – both having swam competitively and developed into rounded swimming coaches. Michael has swam at nationals and Leanne coaches Team Bath.

Lynn – thank you for everything you and your family have done for HFSC and we wish all the best for the future. Please come and visit us anytime – we would love to see you and your family at poolside cheering the swimmers on.
