LIVEWIRE has launched its Learn to Swim programme for children aged four and over.

The reopening of the refurbished swimming pools at Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub has seen more people wanting swimming lessons and there is still availability at all four of LiveWire’s swimming sites, on a first come, first served basis.

The sites include Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub, Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub, Woolston Neighbourhood Hub and Broomfields Leisure Centre

Throughout the swimming programme swimmers will learn water safety, water confidence, swimming techniques and stamina.

The programme also allows children to carry on with competitive swimming, synchronised swimming, water polo and rookie lifesaving if they wish.

James Birdsey, operations manager for LiveWire, said: "Previously we have had a waiting list for our swimming lessons, which are very popular thanks to LiveWire’s extremely experienced instructors and great value pricing.

"However, thanks to the reopening of the pools at Great Sankey, we now have an increased capacity for Learn to Swim sessions, so have a limited number of spots available for immediate starts.

"We encourage anyone interested the sessions to get in touch now for more information, while we do have space available on the sessions."
