Tom Moore was born on 22nd October 1986, the oldest of three children. All three siblings swam for Stevenage Swimming Club from a very young age until going on to university, in Tom’s case until he went to the University of East Anglia. During the holidays he came back and swam at Stevenage. Tom was friendly and popular young man who always had time for a chat with everybody and had a great many friends at the club.

Tom was also a qualified mountain leader and in summer of 2008 he was asked to accompany a group of scouts from Hertfordshire County on a expedition to Liechtenstein. On the last day of the expedition Tom went off for a walk in the mountains and sadly never returned. He had met with an accident and fallen into a ravine.

In Tom’s memory our novice gala, which is held every autumn, was re-named the Tom Moore Memorial Novice Gala. Stevenage Swimming Club also designed a trophy – The Tom Moore Tiger Trophy – which is presented at the gala to a young swimmer who has “stood out” at the event. Recipients are not necessarily the fastest swimmers on the night, but are chosen by Tom’s family who always attend the event to the swimmer they feel has shown the most endeavour.
