The HHSC Committee is responsible for the smooth running of the Club and its financial affairs, as well as the future strategy of the club. It meets on the second Monday of the month. The committee members are all volunteers and some are parents of swimmers. Swimmers and parents are encouraged to give feedback to Committee members or raise any concerns through them.
