Cathy Beer (1934-2013)

With great sadness, we have to report that Cathy Beer, who herself preferred to use her full name Catherine, passed away on 15th November. We understand that she suffered a heart attack.

Please feel free to add your memories of Cathy to this website.

Cathy was president of the County Association in 1974, but her involvement in swimming in the county predated that by more than 20 years and continued right up to her death. She won her first County Championship in 1948. For the centenary, Cathy prepared an analysis of the history of the Association and most recently has taken care of County trophies.

Donations in memory of Cathy can be made to
