Lessons are back thanks to lockdown restrictions easing

Puddle Ducks Lancashire welcomes first cohort of pupils following easing of lockdown restrictions.

Puddle Ducks franchisee owner Jo Gribben and her team of teachers have been celebrating after the first lot of lessons went ahead following lockdown easing in England.

As soon as Puddle Ducks HQ gave the go ahead for lessons to restart, preparations have been put in place to ensure a safe and happy return for all customers. Lessons are still being taught from the pool side but this hasn't hindered the fun every child has been looking forward to.

Jo Gribben, owner at Puddle Ducks Lancashire said: "We've had our heads buried in all the guidance and it's worked well to ensure we could welcome back all of our customers old and new.

"Obviously we are looking forward to the day our teachers can be back in the water where they belong, but for the time being we are happy to do the lessons this way, so that children don't have to miss out on swimming lessons."

What makes the lessons possible at the moment is the highly trained teachers Puddle Ducks invests in. There has been in-depth training in place since the start of the pandemic to ensure a safe teaching environment was possible.

Amy, who teaches at the Foxfields Hotel in Clitheroe, Lancashire said: "It was wonderful to be back teaching. I had a brilliant time and so did our babies, Swim Academy children,  parents and guardians. Of course it's not the same as it was before but we have to do what we can with the measures in place and the feedback we have had from parents has been really positive."
