Every Monday morning we offer transport via our minibus to Fusion Lifestyle in Witham, where we have use of both the small and the main pool from 11-12pm. The minibus leaves Charles Leeks House at 10.30am and returns at about 1pm.
This activity is free to members of Braintree Mencap. Our swimming teacher, Nicky, is kind and patient and works with people of all abilities to enable them to get the most out of their experience in the water.
If you are a confident swimmer we have a volunteer swimming coach who will help you to increase your strength and stamina, as well as improving your swimming stroke technique. There really is something for everyone and we have seen lots of progress over the years. Some people have learned how to swim, or gained confidence in the water. Our more able swimmers have managed to more than double the lengths they do each week!
This is a great way to improve fitness whilst having fun in a no pressure, friendly environment!
If you are interested in joining our group, or would like more information please speak to Jess Leonard at the Office.
