What our parents say……..

“My daughter was so nervous about learning to swim. I was just about to give up when I found Take the Plunge. Whilst the first 10 minutes of the first session was stressful for everyone, by the end of it she was happy, putting her face in and blowing bubbles. After one term she now swims confidently on her front and her back.”
