We are all missing you!!!
Is there swimming tonight at bishops waltham????!
Hi Lucy, I wonder whether an orange maths exercise book with Noah Hughes’ name on it was left at the Swimming pool on Saturday morning? Here’s hoping 🤞🏼!
Hi there, Just to let you know that Thomas Fryer will be unable to attend his lesson with Vicky today as he has broken his left foot so will be out of action for about 6 weeks. When he is able he will be keen to return. The family should have moved to Stubbington by then and I asked Vicky about moving him to Titchfield. She said it was a good idea as he has made such good progress. His mother, Chrissie, would like him to stay with Vicky if possible. Can you let us know?
Will he forfeit his fees because of his absence or will they be carried forward ?
Thank you Lynda Woodhams
PS Thomas was sledging and hit a tree!
I think Noah left his blue zip up Boden fleece jacket in the boys changing rooms this morning - it is named. Might you have picked it up by any chance?

☀️ 🏊‍♀️ Summer Intensive Courses 🏊‍♀️☀️

We are now taking bookings for our Summer Intensive Courses that will be held at Durley House pool in August.

These courses offer a fun way for children to improve water skills and stroke technique and are aimed at Beginner and Intermediate swimmers.


Course Duration:
4 x 30 minute sessions taken between 8.30-12.30

Monday 2nd August to Thursday 5th August
Monday 9th August to Thursday 12th August
Monday 16th August to Thursday 19th August
Monday 23rd August to Thursday 26th August

Fees are £56 for a one week course

To reserve a place please email us with your preferred week & time a brief summary of your childs swimming ability to help us place them in a group of swimmers of a similar ability. It is helpful to know not just about their stroke ability but also whether they are nervous in the water and whether there are any special considerations we should be aware of.

We will contact you to discuss and finalise details & how to pay!

Many thanks,
The LWSA Team

⭐️ Herbie was petrified of the water 4 weeks ago, holding on for dear life and just so worried about sinking! He’s now blowing bubbles, jumping in by himself, holding a star float by himself and he even pushed off into a rocket by himself today...the list goes on! 💙 His face says it all 😍

Mum - “just wanted to say thank you so much! I can’t believe what a transformation you achieved in Herbie in just half an hour! That is literally the first time he has ever ever floated on his own in the water without crying. Made me a bit emotional! You wouldn’t think it’s the same child - thank you again 🤩x”

First week back in the pool and it’s been so lovely to see you all - after a long 4 months off we are delighted to be teaching and excited to see the children’s progress in the coming weeks 🐬

We’ve also loved seeing all your photos & feedback on social media...Keep them coming and tag @lwsa_lovetoswim to get featured on our Instagram page or leave a review with your photo attached on our page ⭐️

Happy New Year to All Our Swimmers !!! Let’s hope we can get back to the pool soon 🏊‍♂️

28/12/2020

We hope you all had a magical Christmas ✨⭐️

We will be sending out an email/update on Wednesday after Boris has made his announcement. This will be regarding whether we will be allowed to return to the pool on the 2nd Jan, it is, however, looking unlikely at the moment. Just so you’re all clear, if we remain in Tier 4 then we cannot swim, if we move to Tier 3 then we can swim!

Stay safe everybody 💙 ###

21/12/2020

Our warmest wishes to all our lovely families for the festive season and for a safe and healthy New Year.

We also just wanted to say another great big THANK YOU to everyone that has supported our little swim school this year... its certainly been a rollercoaster but we’re hoping it can only get better.. staying positive for 2021!

Here’s a little Christmas synchro from our Friday night squad! 🏊‍♀️ 🎄

A bit of good news on a bleak day 😃😃😃

03/11/2020

Following the governments announcement about a national lockdown, we are being forced to close for the second time from Thursday 5th November 2020 until Thursday 3rd December 2020. Please note we will be running lessons right up until Wednesday evening as normal. As before, we will be crediting your account with the missed sessions onto the Spring Term Enrolment.

We have been very happy with how the lessons & our safety procedures have been running and feel we had just started to adapt to the new “normal”. We have loved seeing the children progress over the past 7/8 weeks and we are all deeply upset that the progress has been paused again. We will miss the children and hope that it is only a short time off this time round. We look forward to seeing you all again for the last few weeks of term. As always, thank you for your continued support & patience! We are so lucky to have such lovely customers & pupils ! 🐬🐳🐠

[10/19/20]   🐬HALF TERM NEXT WEEK🐬

We’ve had a couple of messages regarding when we break for half term!

Monday 26th October - Saturday 31st October

To clarify there is swimming this Saturday the 24th October and no swimming on the 31st October!

[09/28/20]   ❄️ Winter Months at West Hill & New Place ❄️

As it’s starting to get colder please make sure your children are fully equipped and please either bring a hat or head towel for after the lesson! Our covid officer Sasha is now going to be helping the children get changed at West Hill on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Freya on a Saturday!

Please keep it simple and label your clothes and bags so that we avoid lost belongings!

Ideas on easy clothing and shoes for after swimming -

- Towelling Robe & warm coat or Dressing gown to go over the top, woolly hat and hoods up to keep head and ears warm!

- Warm Pyjamas /onesies and warm coat or dressing gown to go over the top

- Fluffy Crocs

- Warm boots

If anyone else has any other good suggestions for easy warm clothing please comment below!

We are just as frustrated as you and wish you could sit on poolside but it’s not our decision and we just need to respect the pools policies!

We will be sending reports this week with an update on progress and settling in so far but overall everyone has settled in nicely and we are pleased with how it’s running so far! Hopefully we can invite you back onto poolside soon!

Love, The LWSA Team

What a fantastic first day back in the pool! It all went really well and thank you all for following the system & procedures we put in place! It was lovely to see you all (even with face masks /visors this end!)

🐬The children also did really well, walking down by themselves and they all listened and were engaged in their lessons! We noticed a few had forgotten a couple of things which was totally expected but amazed at how quickly they picked it back up and only on day one! Excited to see some progress over the next few days! 🐬

We are also taking bookings for next week Mon-Thursday so please email me if you’d like to join us!
