Swimmers - we need you! 

Do you need an incentive to increase your exercise levels after Christmas?

HASSRA are looking for new Swimming Team members to represent the Department in the Civil Service Swimming Champi­on­ships.

The current teams standards are mixed but if you have ever been a competitive swimmer, even as a child, we are confident that if you get back in the pool and start training now you will be an asset to our team when we compete in the Civil Service Swimming Championship (CSSC).

The CSSC trials are held every year in Sheffield and this year are held on Thursday and Friday 9th/10th May. Swimmers compete in a variety of events some open to all ages and some where you swim against others in your age group. There are minimum time standards set and these need to be achieved to score points for our team but these times are very achievable!! If you are accepted as part of the National HASSRA team paid special leave will normally be available and HASSRA will pay for travel and accom­moda­tion.

If you think you may be interested for this year (or next) please contact our National Team manager Nick Valentine nick.valentine@dwp.gsi.gov.uk or me (a humble team member) colin.meadows@dwp.gsi.gov.uk at Basingstoke JC - 07775945291.

Either of us can supply more details about events on offer and standards. You will not regret it!

South East Sports & Social Day 2019

This year's Sports and Social Day will be held on Wednesday 12th June at the NPL Ground Teddington in conjunction with HASSRA London.

Look out for the entry booklet but book your leave now, come along, enjoy the day and catch up with your colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere! At last years event the sun was shining, the silent disco rocking and the inflatables bouncing! It was another enjoyable day and we raised an excellent £442.00 for the Charity for Civil Servants, who were there supporting the day as usual. Here's to another fun day in June!

Check out the results and other photos from the day: Results photos 2018.pdf.
