YOUNGSTERS will be able to make a splash at a new baby and toddler swimming school being set up in Weston.

Hayley said: “I’m really excited to be launching my Turtle Tots business in Weston. I’ve lived in North Somerset all my life, and now live in Weston, so to be teaching here is fantastic.

“The pool at The Campus is really warm so it’s perfect for babies; and teaching babies and toddlers to swim is not only fun, but incredibly rewarding because I’m teaching them an important life skill.

“What’s more, a percentage of every class cost will be given to local charity Springboard, which I’m thrilled to be supporting.”
