Win learn to swim goodies

Did you know that 57% of children aged between 7-11 years old are not able to swim? I find this disturbing as under the national curriculum all schools are required to teach children to swim a distance of 25 metres confidently. It is a skill that can save lives, you read so often of children and young people falling into rivers. If they can swim at least they have a chance to save themselves. In a bid to change this Swimshop are running a ‘Save a Life, Learn to Swim’ campaign. The Learn to Swim campaign sponsors Swimshop, swimming costumes and equipment online.

I love swimming, it is a relaxing sport. I made a point of taking my son to swimming lessons from an early age and it really paid off. He is now a confident swimmer and often wins at swimming galas at school. It is an activity the whole family can enjoy together.

If you have little ones who are learning to swim, I have a lovely giveaway from Swimshop for some equipment which will help them.

SwimShop Learn to SwimI would like to offer you and your readers a chance to win specialist children’s swimming equipment from Swimshop. Three readers can win a set of deluxe armbands and either a shark swimming float or a fish swimming float, shown in the picture above.

    I think it is so important to be able to swim, because it really can save lives – either your own or helping someone else that is in trouble.

    In Juliette’s school, they used to put all the ones who couldn’t swim in the shallow end to play and taught the ones who could swim to swim better – backwards logic or what ?!
