This girl can swim
Swimming is the perfect way to clear your head, wind down from a busy day and just so happens to be brilliant for your body. That’s why we’ve teamed up with This Girl Can.
Our female swim sessions have been designed to provide a relaxing environment where you can swim at your own pace, meet new people and get the most out of your swim for both your body and mind. Come by and give it a go!
We are providing all of this for the price of a swim and you don’t need to book:
- Female support will be available on poolside including advice on technique
- High powered hair dryers in the changing room
- Music to listen to while you swim
- Free tea and coffee in our dedicated social area to meet other women just like you

As a non-swimmer, for 6 years I've been 'flapping about' doing various therapeutic post-surgery classes in the pool (always armed with my woggle!), and recently decided to join 'This Girl Can' to gain more confidence in the water.
After a while I left my trusted woggle behind, and used instead both the large and small buoyancy floats. At the fourth session I decided to discard the small floats, and with some determination I looked at the rail in the pool and just said to myself 'this girl CAN', and somehow managed two strokes towards the rail! After that there was no stopping me, and with huge encouragement from Becky and Nicky I managed half a width before the session was over.
I now plan to build on this, but would just like to give huge thanks to Becky and Nicky for their help and encouragement. I am soo proud of my achievement, and all thanks to 'This Girl Can'.
With kind regards Margaret Griffiths
