Engines Off Please!

Did you know that an idling vehicle produces almost twice the emissions as a moving vehicle? Prioritise children’s health and the health of our planet over the comfort of drivers who repeatedly keep their vehicle engine running when parked.

Sally Swim School

Sally Crathern, Barrow Hills Pre-Prep swimming teacher is running a week long intensive swimming course from April 4th – 8th at King Edward’s Witley. This is for half an hour each morning, any time between 9.00am and 11.00am. After nearly two years of no swimming we need to get your children back in the water!

This course is perfect for any children over the age of four, from nervous non swimmers to strong club standard. Group sizes are small with teachers in the water with young/less confident swimmers. The aim in to improve water confidence, learn new skills and improve on stroke technique. All teachers are DBS checked and have up to date life saving qualifications. For more details about class descriptions and booking forms please go to https://www.sallyswimschool.com/crash-courses.
