It's not very often we get invited out to lunch! Usually it is a quick sandwich and a cup of tea, sitting at our desks. Jo and I were therefore rather excited when we were contacted by the Federation of Small Businesses and invited out to lunch. How could we refuse?! They presented us with a small plaque, to thank us for introducing all our franchisees to them.
The Federation of Small Businesses is a membership organisation which protects and supports the needs and interests of small business owners across the UK. It does this through networking and lobbying. Obviously, this is of great importance to all our franchise owners.
But the benefits of being a member of the FSB don't stop there. The organisation offers some really important benefits such as legal support and financial services that enable our franchise owners to run their businesses smoothly and effectively, knowing that the backup is there if they need it.
We have been so impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism of the FSB that we have encouraged all our franchisees to join and will continue to do so.
And it was a very good lunch!!

Re-enrolment time is swinging around again - already. It always seems such a long time in advance when we send out the emails in June for classes in September. You must think we are mad!! But please, please book in as soon as possible! We really, really want to know you are coming back before we finish this term.
Even if you've been able to have fun in a pool with your baby on holiday, it is really important to get back into the routine of classes in September, the start of our new year, really.
The end of the Summer term is such an emotional time for our teachers as they say good bye to many of their little swimmers who are starting school in September. Wow!! Where did those years go? There are always a few tears near the end of term....we will miss you and wish you lots and lots of luck!
If you are going to be lucky enough to join our Swim Academy classes, we can't wait to welcome you! We're sure you will love it. And we are hoping that a couple more franchises will be starting Swim Academy classes in January... so watch this space!
