Today is the final day for the 2013 MEN Wish Campaign and the campaign is ending with a final bonus day! Please, please try to grab a copy of the MEN and bring the tokens in as soon as possible to Marlins.

If you have any tokens at home, please could you bring these in to Marlins as soon as possible so that the tokens can be sorted out and sent off to the MEN.

Don’t forget that it is our Annual Gala today and this replaces the usual squad training session. If you have not entered the gala, please note todays training is cancelled and will be on again as normal next weekend.

Lesson / Squad Training Cancellation

28 Nov, 2013

This is just a quick reminder that there are NO lessons or squad training on Friday due to the Junior Fun Gala taking place.

If we have any more older squad members able to assist at the gala on Friday night, that would be very much appreciated. Friday lessons return to normal on December 6th.

Brand New Website!

22 Nov, 2013

Dear Members,

This is to let you know that Dukinfield Marlins has a brand new website! The address for the website is:


Why not take a good look around the site and bookmark for future reference! The site will be added to regularly with all the club’s news plus badge sessions, changes to lessons, photos, Christmas closure details, etc, as time goes on. There will be all sorts there! Additional news will be added to the site after the next committee meeting on December 2nd so watch that space!

If you haven’t had the chance yet to do so, please do get inviolved with having your say about the council’s proposals to close Denton and Dukinfield pools with a view to building a brand new leisure centre to replace both centres. These proposals have a direct effect on the club and we need as many people as possible to get involved. Please take a few minutes to access The Big Conversation on the Tameside Council website. THE CLOSING DATE FOR INVOLVEMENT IS DECEMBER 16th.

Please don’t forget to keep collecting and handing your MEN Wish Campaign tokens. The current campaign ends on Saturday, November 30th so please let’s have a big push during the final week! Please hand in any tokens you may already have in the meantime. Thank you!

Kind Regards,
Dukinfield Marlins ASC
