Scores of excited youngsters put their new-found swimming skills into practice at The Lido in Cheltenham at our annual Swim for Safety presentation day.

Pupils from primary schools across Cheltenham and Tewkesbury took part in the celebration swim and presentation run by Heidi’s Heroes, the School Sports Network, and kindly hosted by The Lido.

Children were presented with their achievement certificates, a voucher for five free swims at Leisure@Cheltenham, and a pair of brand new swimming goggles.

Paul Wood, Heidi’s Heroes founder said: “It’s been another fantastic morning and a very successful course for the children, who are now swimming confidently and have lost all fear of the water. A lot of hard work and organisation goes into the Swim for Safety week by the SSN and the tutors I’d like to thank everyone who helped this year and congratulate the children on their success. The course is a marvellous team effort.”
