It was so lovely to see swimmers back at the pool this week as we opened our sessions again after lockdown and then some technical pool issues beyond our control. During lockdown we had some great news, we were successful in receiving a funding bid to continue our sessions for another year. We are now supported by Leicestershire County Council and are now able to offer free swims for carers. So this means if you come to swim with us, your carer can swim with you for free. We are hoping this helps many more people feel they can attend the swim sessions without extra financial pressure of paying for two swim fees.
We are working on being able to take payment online for donations and swimming via a button on our website. This will be really helpful as we adjust to the new normal where cash it seems is becoming very rare.
We saw a lot more children in the pool on Saturday which was so lovely to see. We have a variety of different floats and swim aids to help swimmers young and old.
