Memory Lane Ripley. Heanor Schools' swimming champion Alexis Smith.

WE have a proud youngster showing off a trophy she had won for swimming.

The picture, taken from our own archives is of Alexis Smith, who was a member of Heanor Swimming Club.

She had taken part in a Heanor Schools girls’ Swimming event.

According to the information on the back of the picture Alexis was crowned champion at the junior schools’ swimming gala event.

If Alexis spots this or you know her, it would be great to find out what she went on to do. We do not have a year for when this shot was taken but think it was back in the 1980s or early 1990s. Call us on 01773 514162.
