Duncan Newby


14th July
It is the news that everyone associated with the swimming club past and present feared as I am sorry to report that Duncan Newby has passed away.

Duncan who was responsible for producing and co-ordinating many of the swimming clubs training programmes was a very animated and committed character. His involvement and association with the club saw the development of many talented young swimmers over the years.

Duncan also formed and ran the successful NEUVYA swimming school which catered for potential swimmers of all ages and abilities (adults & children). 

Duncan was also a competitive member of the Perranporth Surf Life Saving Club.


His funeral arrangements are as follows:

Monday 21st July, Trelawney Chapel, Penmount Crematorium, Truro at 4pm

Dress code: summer (no dark colors)

No flowers please

Donations to Perranporth SLSC

The wake will be at The Watering Hole on Perranporth beach and are thoughts are with his family at this time.
