Waterlife Pre Christmas Swimming News

Dear Swimmers,

Jackie will be at Bisley today with Sarah at Strathmore. My Balham classes run as usual although Alderbrook school finishes at 1.45 pm.
Clare will finish tomorrow at Balham whilst I cover for Kirsty at Morden.
We will then enjoy two weeks holiday returning to the water on Mon 5th January.
I would like to thank all the venue staff that enable our lessons to happen, especially the pool maintenance teams who do such a great job.
Also a huge thanks to @neilporter who has been my web/ techi man for years. With the launch of our new website I am now able to update without assistance. Thank you Neil you have been fabulous.

End of Term

We are now nearing the end of term with just our Saturday classes officially swimming tomorrow.

It will be our last ever dip at Limpsfield Grange and I will be sad to see this fabulous site go but we must be realistic and call time.
Alderbrook will be up and running for Saturday after it’s closure today. The Friday afternoon classes will now swim on Fri 14th Nov to make up.
Both Strathmore school & Bagshot will begin their Winter term next week. Strathmore will be closed on 5th Dec which means we swim on the 14th Nov to make up this lose.

Crystal is celebrating a significant birthday this month so instead of 20th Nov, swimmers there will start on the 13th Nov. I am planning to pop down that week all being well.

I popped into Bramley Hill on Wednesday and observed the rather raucous L6 class. What fantastic little swimmers and what fun they were having.
Fortunately I didn’t then get stuck in the Morden accident that grid locked the area as I made my way to teach in Petersham.
Cedars have dealt with the air conditioning so now both water and air temperature should have significantly improved. Any problems, just let me know and I will forward them on!

So for most of you it is a week of rest next week which I hope you enjoy.

Please forward any outstanding payments prior to term commencing, so that I may complete the registers.
Thank you all for your custom and a huge thanks to the instructors, door staff and caretakers without whom we would be lost.

Happy swimming Lizzie.

One More Week to Go

We are nearly there!
We have just one more full week of swimming before completing our term.
Our Saturday classes will swim tomorrow before we all break for the school half term 27th Oct-1st Nov.

Our final week of term runs from Mon 3rd Nov-Sat 8th Nov.
I will be reaching at Limpsfield Grange this Saturday. It will be sad to let this site go but unfortunately it has never picked up enough business. If only I could transport the venue to London!
I would like to send huge thanks to Tim Burns who has maintained the pool superbly for many years.

For our Balham L4 swimmers that are considering moving up Lara has kindly put together a little blurb. Don’t forget if attending the Thursday 4-6pm classes you would be returning against the flow of traffic.

My 15 month son and I have used the Middleton Road pool for nearly a year. We absolutely love the pool and the swimming lessons here and we are very lucky to have found it! The pool is very spacious and clean and it has great parking facilities. Compared to other pools we have used for swimming lessons, this really is a fantastic pool! I would definitely recommend the lessons at this pool with Waterlife and Kirsty is a fab teacher and makes the lessons great fun for the little ones.

Although the school will be shut, I will be taking photo’s at Alderbrook on Tues at 2.10 pm. Please do let me know if you have missed out and would like to join us.
Have a super half term break and let me know how you would like to proceed next term so that i may put the registers together.

Lizzie & the team.
