Competitive Swimming in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire

Affiliated to Swim England

Our Committee

Swimmer Development Officer - Rachel Pearson

My eldest daughter, Kirsty, first joined Four Shires in 2011 with both Michael and Zoe joining later. I initially became involved by managing the club kit prior to joining the committee in 2014 as Membership Secretary, and then becoming Chair in 2016.  I can often be found poolside at galas supporting our swimmers as Team Manager and when not involved with 4SSC in one way or another, enjoy spending time with family and friends, baking and walks in the countryside.   Prior to having the children, I worked in Human Resources and am now a Teaching Assistant.

Club Treasurer - Chris Lawrence

I took on the role of Gala Secretary in Spring 2015, and as of June 2018 took on the role of Treasurer. I’ve been bringing my daughter Ellie along to sessions since early 2013. As she has progressed, my wife Catherine and I have spent more and more time at galas and training, so the next logical step was to get involved, et voila. Now my other daughter Imogen is following in the swimming footsteps.

I've also trained as an ASA Official (nearly passed my J1) & am a Team Manager (2).

I work as an IT Business Consultant working with retailers, having spent some 30 years previously in retail. I also enjoy watching F1 & Rugby Union, when time permits.

Club Secretary - Keri Barnard

Hello! I have 2 children, Joe and Annabel, who have been swimming for the club since 2015. Initially, I became involved as a Team Manager assisting at galas and have recently taken on the role of Gala Secretary. I work part time as a Baby and Pre-school Swimming instructor for Puddle Ducks Oxfordshire. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, watching rugby (particularly when my team thrashes my husband's) and walking my chocolate lab called Zazu.
