Meet The Trustees

Roger Cooke


Involved through Peninsular Canoe Club. Became a Trustee in 1998. Mostly involved with engineering and maintenance. Took over as chair of the Trust when Margaret Twemlow resigned in 2011. Swam in the pool in the late 50's/early 60's before it had a roof. 

Sandra Hind


I have had a varied secretarial background, having worked at the University of Liverpool, HM Coroners Court, Probation Service, Ford Motor Co. and, prior to retiring 3 years ago, at Wirral Able Child Centre. My son attended Calday Grange Grammar School which is when my involvement with the pool began. I became a Trustee responsible for co-ordinating the bookings and liaising with user groups. I am a member of the Aquafit Classes at the pool.    

John Chapman

I have been a West Kirby resident for the last 38 years and Wirral resident fro most of my life. I am married and have two grown up daughters. I am a retired Mechanical Engineer having worked in the oil and gas industry for most of my working life. I became a Trustee in January 2012 and have mainly been involved in the procuring of funding for upgrading the pool facilities.

I am also the Chairman/Membership Secretary of the Calday Grange Swimming Club. 

Catherine Johnson


An Accountant working for a practice in Chester. Attended the first meetings in 1996 to discuss setting up a Trust and volunteered as Treasurer. My interest was to keep the pool available for the use of the school, as a Parent and Governor. I later became a Trustee and am still here! If anyone has a query about their invoices they can always contact me.

Brian Magor

Taught at Calday for 32 years as Head of History and later as Deputy Head including a spell as Acting Head. Retired in 2003. Currently Group Scout Leader of St Andrews, Meols, Scout Group and Secretary of Hoylake Photographic Society. His children learnt to swim in the pool when staff had access on a Sunday - often in dark green water! The pool is much cleaner now. Currently responsible for the Newsletter.
