Alton Sports Centre still has places available on its FREE rookie lifeguard and water safety skills sessions for children tomorrow (Saturday) – marking Drowning Prevention Week.

Drowning Prevention Week takes place each June and aims to equip everybody across the UK and Ireland with the skills and knowledge to make the right decisions about water safety.

Adele Dollery, swim manager at Alton Sports Centre, said: “Learning essential water skills is key, no matter your age or ability. Our free workshops aim to educate and encourage water confidence to ensure everyone can enjoy the water safely.

“Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, many young people missed out on lessons, which is why this is the perfect opportunity for families and their children to learn more about water safety.

“It’s also coming up to the summer holidays where many families will be venturing to the seaside or choosing to go for a swim in the pool, making it even more important to learn these vital skills.”

Sessions must be booked in advance. For more information, or to book your space, email: [email protected]
