Making extra fast progress in our Learn to Swim programme is Amelia. Not content with achieving the Duckling Award Grade 2 in May she followed this up with Grade 3 in June. Great swimming Amelia!
Our latest Jack Petchey Award winner for outstanding achievement in April was Gabrielle from B Squad. She is seen here receiving her certificate from B Squad coach Charlie Dentith.
Well done Gabrielle.
