New Wiltshire swimming pool launches family classes – Swindon Advertiser

Westbury Swimarium has officially opened its doors and launched a brand new swim school.
Like riding a bike, learning to swim is a tick box that many parents and children hope to tick off this summer before returning back to school in September.  
Westbury Swimarium intends to do just that by helping families all over Wiltshire achieve this childhood milestone.
The purpose-built pool, fit with a multi-coloured LED light system and speakers, has already seen hundreds of swimmers taking a dip with adults and children undergoing free assessments.
Whilst these free assessments are continuing through the summer months, swimming lessons ranging from beginner level to advanced are commencing from August 7.
The pool boasts a UV filter and reduced chlorine levels that are less harmful to the skin, as well as a warm 30-degree water temperature.
Proud owners of this family-run establishment Rick and Sarah Harris-Johnstone have over 40 years of experience, and beyond their clear passion for swim teaching, they are keen to give back to the community.
As well as the Child and Adult classes, the establishment also offers Aquafit and Aqua mobility sessions which have already received glowing reviews from the attendees who praised the workout, that wasn’t only good for their physical wellbeing but also their mental health.
Slots have also been designated to Autism-friendly classes which see the lights dim to calming shades of blue and the speakers play soothing classical music to create a more comfortable environment for the swimmers.
The school welcomes all ages from two years and six months upwards, and the staff’s unwavering passion for swim teaching is already shining through with customers leaving the pool feeling more confident, proud, and excited for their next lesson.
One parent wrote: “My son was talking about it all day, he absolutely loved it.”
Whilst another adult customer thanked the team, writing “In that very short time I felt that I had achieved so much. The style of teaching is really user-centric and targeted. The pool is lovely and the ambient temperature is spot on.”
The Swimarium provides a 12-week course of 45-minute lessons, as well as a summer fast track scheme.
You can visit their website or find them on Facebook to learn more and book your free assessment.
