Orion Swimming Club AGM

The AGM will take place on Monday 3rd July at KEBS - starting at 6.45pm

The Committee has taken the decision to run this years AGM as a standalone event . Rather than ask families to commit to two social events, the BBQ social evening will be incorporated into the Orion at 50 event at Tally-Ho on September 9th.


Always nice to get some artwork from our talented swimmers.

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 if you are interested in meeting old or current coaches, friends and team mates.

Or if you leave your contact details via website then we can keep you informed of all events related to the year ahead

To further encourage every Orion family to attend we are offering family tickets ( 2 adults + up to 5 u/18's) at £50 which will include food and all the various entertainments going on. An adult ticket will remain at £20 with £10 per individual child.

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:
