Hundreds of free swimming lessons are available for children and families in Islington’s pools this summer.

The lessons are being provided by Islington Council and GLL for under-threes accompanied by an adult, children aged from four to 16, and for families to learn to swim and enjoy the pool in family lessons.

Tyron Fuller, from GLL, said: “It’s been a challenging year, with so many of our children and families losing out on the opportunity to learn to swim and enjoy our local pools due to the pandemic.  

"But now we have the opportunity to make up for lost time and there has never been a better time to start learning to swim. 

“Combining the importance of water safety, with fun activities, our lessons offer a great way to get active and stay safe this summer.”
