What people say about Aqua Gym
"We moved to Aquagym for our children’s swimming lessons because we were so impressed with the caring, knowledgeable teachers and the progress made in a short time. That was 7½ years ago and we still couldn’t be happier. From when you first walk in the door, where you are greeted with wonderful friendly faces, to when your child finishes their lesson, they tick all the boxes. We have found the reception staff to be amazingly patient and accommodating when it comes to moving to new days/times."
