Swimming is a life skill worth fighting for





During the last school summer holiday I had the same thought lots of local parents had and decided to take the children to Jesus Green Lido.

The perfect place to go on a sweltering day. I roped in another mum and we piled over with picnics and five children.

Our children, who are all under 12, are mixed ability swimmers. I imagined the less confident children would have fun splashing around with each other in the shallow end. The older, more competent ones could be left to jump in at the deep end. As we all know, from our own happy memories, it’s this kind of fun that builds water confidence and a lifelong love of swimming.
