Before lockdown we'd just launched our new website and booking system and were researching building our own pool in addition to signing a contract as a lesson provider in other developments. Unfortunately, this has been put on hold but, the extra money received will enable us to continue our dream to provide community swimming lessons within East London in our own pool. Our current locations are all based in and around the Docklands which is going through an exciting process of change and development with significant investment and regeneration, and yet, Newham has one of the lowest rates of participation in physical activity in the country. Swimming is the most popular sport in England and has enormous health benefits, yet despite being part of the national curriculum, one in four youngsters leave primary school unable to swim 25m or perform self-rescue. As an established business in the area, we want to be part of the area growth and enhance our position within the community by providing a safe, clean and welcoming environment to enable people to have fun and develop their aquatic skills.
Your support is very much appreciated!
