Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II – Swim England North West Statement


It is with great sadness we write on behalf of the Swim England North West Directors and our members, following the recent announcement from Buckingham Palace confirming the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, to extend our deepest condolences to the Royal Family.

We would like to thank Her Majesty for her steadfast and unwavering service to the Country and Commonwealth over the last seventy years. 

Her Majesty was the patron of the national governing body – then known as the Amateur Swimming Association – for 63 years from 1953 until handing over the role to The Duke of Cambridge in December 2016.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Royal Family at this very difficult time.

David Burgham
Chair
