Mr. Chris Hickling
(FOR THE 2013 SEASON)
Chris Hickling has worked hard on the Executive Committee for the Association for many years now and in many roles. Currently as Honorary Safety Boat Coordinator, ensuring all the swims have the correct amount of safety boats attending, and in the past Honorary Health and Safety Officer, and Honorary Pilot Life Saver Officer.
Along with this he helps his now wife Liane in the organising and running of Wykeham and his sister in Law Dee at Windermere. He is also seen at many of the swims on the BLDSA calendar in one of the Safety boats in a kayak or as an Official on the side.
His main aims have been the safety of the swimmers, kayakers and officials. He has constantly strived to ensure that the association has kept up to date with safety issues and therefore deserves recognition for his hard work.
