Swimming sessions at the Thamesdown Hydrotherapy pool are continuing on Monday evenings from 6 -7pm on a fortnightly basis. The times include changing time. They are open to all ages but all children must be accompanied by an adult and remain their responsibility at all times.
The sessions start with a period of coaching by Vicky Hunt, tailored to individual levels of ability. This is followed by free time where people can continue practicing what they have learnt or just play with balls etc.
It has been necessary to review the cost of providing these sessions as we no longer have any grant monies allocated to them. Therefore, from Monday 1st October the cost per session will be £1.00 for the person with Down’s
Syndrome and £2.00 for the parent/carer accompanying.
There are currently some spaces available so if you wish to join us please get in touch with John Stow**. Could those who currently swim also confirm that they wish to continue.
The sessions will now be split into groups of 5 dates with full payment due at the first session. The first set of dates is:
Monday 1st October
Monday 15th October
Monday 29th October
Monday 12th November
Monday 26th November
Cheques payable to the “Swindon Down's Syndrome Group” can be given to John at the session.
NB The pool is currently waiting for a date when essential building works will be carried out. We have been promised 4 weeks’ notice when they know but this will mean a break in our sessions until the work is completed. More information when we have it.
