Western Swimming Pool launch FREE Swimming

The team at the Western Swimming Pool are delighted to announce an exciting development that will support and encourage children in the West of the Island to swim.

The Peel pool is at the centre of the community and values the importance of teaching young children to at least have the fundamentals of swimming.

Pool manager, Kath Andrews stresses the benefits of swimming skills not only for safety, enjoyment but for education plus added benefits for health. She added: “So we are delighted to be launching our Peel Seal cards”

Initially these cards will be open to children that use the pool for their school swimming lessons. These are Peel Clothworkers, Bunscoill Ghaelgah, St John’s, Foxdale, Marown and Kirk Michael.

The scheme is open to children that attend these schools that are currently in reception, years 1,2 and 3 even if they don’t currently do school swimming. All schools will receive their Peel Seal Card in early September. The scheme will run up for one year up to September 2018.

These cards will allow them to swim for free during any public session at the Western Swimming Pool as long as they are accompanied by a responsible person over the age of 16. The adult will need to be pay the normal entry fee for themselves but they can use the pools with 2 children under the age of 8. The adult will have responsibility for the children.

Kath and her team look forward to welcoming the children to the pool in the near future. She commented: “Ramsey Swimming Pool have been running this initiative for last 3 years with great success so we thank Gary Hunter and the team for their guidance with this scheme.”
