Aldershot Pools Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the year
After a challenging 2021 we wanted to round the year off with some good news stories. We asked all of our Swimming Teachers to nominate those distinctive, very special swimmers who deserved a bit of recognition.
They were asked to identify swimmers on our lesson programmes (children and adults) who have displayed positive attitudes, unyielding determination or, have put in efforts over and above their peers. They may have overcome personal adversity or achieved something unexpected or challenging.
Fearne Wheeler - Aldershot Pools Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by her teacher Terri Durrant
"Fearne is profoundly deaf but that has never stopped her from learning to swim. Always attentive, watching others go before her to ensure she knows what to do. Other children within the group also help and interact with her to meet her needs.
Well done Fearne!"
