Fit&Well Swim School Newsletter June




September Swimming Newsletter


A huge well done to the whopping 359 swim school members who achieved a swimming award during the school summer holiday period – you have proved that weekly swimming really pays off! And, as casual swimming is free to members, why not add another practice session or show off your new water skills to your friends?

Please note, there won’t be any lessons between 4 pm – 6 pm at The John Warner Sports Centre on Monday 16 October due to the school holding a gala. 



You can view our Autumn timetables for swimming at The John Warner Sports Centre and The Laura Trott Leisure Centre on our website.



Windmill Lane Closure

Monday 4 September to Wednesday 6 September

9:30 am to 4:00 pm

We have been advised that Windmill Lane will be closed for resurfacing during the above period and it may not be possible to maintain vehicle access to The Laura Trott Leisure Centre car park during the works.

Pedestrian access will be available throughout and the centre will remain open as usual. Alternative car parking is available nearby at Newnham Parade. Leisure centre parking permits will be valid at both alternative car parks across the three days.

Casual centre users without permits will be able to get refunds for parking fees paid in the two alternative car parks during the works. These car park machines issue tickets which do not have a tear-off section to carry for a refund at the centre. Therefore, people should retain the pay and display ticket, as well as the activity receipt obtained in the leisure centre, and present them both at the centre within 14 days of purchase.

We strongly advise you check for the latest update before visiting the centre during this period. You can see more information on our website and social media pages.


If you have friends or family who may be interested in swimming lessons, why not refer them to a FREE swimming assessment? Our no obligation, one-to-one assessment with a fully qualified level 2 instructor will identify swim strengths and weaknesses, and the instructor will advise on the most suitable class. As an added bonus, if you successfully refer a friend to Swim School both you and your friend will receive 50% off the cost of one month’s lessons! The referral bonus cannot be applied retrospectively so you will need to email us your friend’s contact details along with your membership number, BEFORE they contact us.
