Dr Lesley Walker


Lesley became involved in Haringey Aquatics over 30 years ago, when her daughters learnt to swim. Over the last three decades, Lesley has been an integral part of the volunteer base of Haringey Aquatics. She led the committee as its Chairwoman during a key period of change and evolution which saw the club restructure Swimming to increase its competitiveness (2009), add Diving (2011) and Water Polo (2012) as core disciplines and launch a community-based Learn to Swim programme for children and adults in Northumberland Park (2012). In recognition of her outstanding contribution to the club, Lesley was presented with the London Volunteer of the Year Award in 2013 at the Aquaforce Awards.

Linda Samworth


Linda has been a dedicated volunteer within Haringey Aquatics for over forty years, first joining in 1982 when her daughter enrolled in the Learn to Swim programme. A few years later, Linda became the Learn to Swim Coordinator, helping the club expand its learner membership to the highest levels in the club's history. With her keen interest on the competitive side of things, Linda played an indispensable role in the organisation of club galas and competitions over many years and has been our chief timekeeper for as long as most of us can remember. Always at the heart of the club, Linda was our Treasurer for a number of years. More recently, she has continued to support the club as a member of the Executive, this time in the role of club Secretary.
