I always knew that I wanted to run my own business, and when I was asked what I wanted to do with my life in 2005, I replied instantly with an idea that I had been nurturing for a while: I wanted to run my own swimming school.
I was fortunate enough to establish Splish Splosh that year, and through sheer hard work the school grew at an exponential rate. The number of babies and children signing up to learn to take to the water for the first time was incredible, from 2 hours at a weekend to over 100 hours a week.
To alleviate some of the mounting work load, I had asked my Mum, Chris, to join me and help with some of the adminstrative tasks, including distributing the all important ASA and STA swimming badges to the children.
Two years later I was joined by my husband, Adrian, who gave up his full-time job as an IT Manager to set about working to develop the business into the success story that it is today.
As a result of the growth in popularity for swimming schools we have taken on more members of staff, by adding Kathleen and Mark to the team, who are proving to be an invaluable asset.
As Splish Splosh surges ahead in offering lessons across the region in some of the best facilities available, more and more people are learning the benefits of swimming. Working to a programme that focuses on three fundamental principles of fun, safety and sport, all the team at Splish Splosh would like to welcome you to the water!
