Congratulations Anna!

Dorking 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. 

Anna Allen - Dorking Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by her teacher Muhith Ahmed

"Anna was very nervous to swim in the main pool when she first moved up to Stage 3. However she managed to swim 20m on her back without any equipment on her first day!

Well done Anna!"
