Local child and baby swim school, Puddle Ducks Lincolnshire is excited to launch lessons at a brand-new venue in Bucknall, bringing vital life skills to the rural community.
Located on a picturesque farm in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside, Swim Blue at Abbey Warren Retreat is a private and exclusive heated indoor swimming pool providing a warm, inviting setting for youngsters to learn to swim.
Swimming teacher Becky Dean says: “We are thrilled to be running all our Baby and Pre-School programmes at this fabulous new pool. Lessons will be suitable for newborn through to 4 years.”
Puddle Ducks provides award winning swimming classes for children from birth to 10 years old. Teachers focus on creating a nurturing environment, which supports independent swimming for children of all abilities.
The new venue near Woodhall Spa will enable the Bingham-based branch of the nationwide swim school to expand its lessons to those youngsters in remote rural communities who would otherwise have difficulty accessing facilities.
The sessions will run from 9.30am until 12noon on Wednesday and Friday mornings enabling young swimmers to gain water-confidence and a love of swimming.
Puddle Ducks Lincolnshire opened in 2010 and provides innovative baby and child swimming lessons to over 900 children across Lincoln, Newark, Grantham, Edwinstowe and Woodhall Spa.
The company now employs 28 staff, who identify a child’s level of ability and adapt lessons and activities to suit the needs of each child in the class.
Commenting on the expansion, owner of Puddle Ducks Lincolnshire Nicola Wilson said: “We teach life-saving skills from as young as six months old, so that should a child ever need them, they have a bank of invaluable skills that could save their life. Sadly, drowning rates are three times higher in rural areas compared to urban areas, so we are delighted to be able to expand our services to provide access to these vital lessons in this location.”
