Swimming Lessons – 20 August 2020

It is with great regret that the committee at West Wight Swimming Club have decided for many reasons not to restart the swimming lessons that have been provided for many years. Clearly the circumstances are very different than in previous years.

We are encouraging as many of you as possible to register your interest with the West Wight Sports & Community Centre (WWSCC), as they also provide lessons. We will be working with WWSCC in the hope that the children will join our competitive club when they progress in the future, to ensure the continued success of the competitive club.

We are aware that some of you may be due refunds as you paid in advance for the lessons that were cancelled in the spring. If this is the case, please could you email the club treasurer at julietjerram@yahoo.co.uk
