WaldenJNR is fortunate to have a willing Committee of volunteers,  but the Club is always grateful for offers of additional help. We welcome any parent, grandparent, carer or friends who would like to help us (not necessarily as a Committee member).  If you feel able to offer your help, do please speak to one of us. Needless to say you would be welcomed with open arms!

If you ever need to talk to any of the Committee, contact details are given below.

Elaine's previously rowed for Cambridge 99s and used to help with coaching the junior and development squads. In August 2013 Elaine completed the inaugural Ride100 London and in Sept 2016 Elaine completed the Dart 10km swim , she has also completed in several triathlons including Blenheim Palace & Windsor Triathlons.  Due to time pressures Elaine focuses on Open Water swimming, and enjoys finding lakes, rivers and sea swims around the UK, or swim holidays further afield.

Elaine recognizes that  participation in sport and physical activity can empower individual girls and women in particular. Involvement in sport and physical activity can, for example, build life skills, confidence and body awareness and may create social networks, which result in dramatic positive life changes for participants.   

She is also a cat lover which is fortunate as she has provided a home for Wallace our club mascot.
