FOLLOWING an extended Christmas break, the Swim Inspiration swimming group is set to start again at the Splash leisure pool on Friday, March 1.
Swim Inspiration is a weekly programme aimed at people who are recovering from strokes or suffering with chronic conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease, or who are above a healthy weight.
Swim Inspiration has recently received recognition by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Sports Partnership with founder, local practice nurse Jane Garner winning the Be Active award at the partnership's annual awards.
Participants are led through a mixture of exercises in the pool by qualified swim instructors and nurses, with sessions by heath professionals also offered.
The sessions are held every Friday from 9.30am to 10.30am.
Due to a mandatory preliminary health check, it is important to book at the start.
It costs £2.50 a week.
For more information, contact Jane Garner on 07988 699556 or Catherine Smith on 07886 196037.
