Lottery funding helps swimming club carry on during pandemic


LYMM Swimming Club has received over £4,400 funding from the National Lottery to help carry on teaching children how to swim during the pandemic.

Lymm Parish Council Chair Cllr Bob Barr presented Lymm Swimming Club with a cheque for £4,472 from the National Lottery Funding at the Cross in Lymm village recently.

This will enable the club to respond to changes imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic in continuing to deliver swimming lessons for local children.

The swimming club based at Lymm High School pool, has been running since 1977 and to date has given over 4000 young children the life skill of swimming, with tailored lessons to meet their individual needs.

Secretary Pam Pollard said: “We are delighted that the National Lottery Community Fund has recognised our work in this way. Thank you #NationalLottery players!

Meanwhile Cllr. Barr also unveiled a plaque to commemorate Mrs Hilary Brooks, who sadly passed away last year, as a mark of respect for her great work as the Vice-Chair of the club. Her family, friends and club members were there to celebrate the unveiling.
