Congratulations Harry!

Felixstowe 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. 

Harry Burt - Blackwater Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Louise Eaton

"Harry has just turned 5 and has been swimming since he was a baby. He has excelled through the stages, is attentive, focused and picks everything up so quickly at a young age. He is such a lovely, friendly and happy boy, destined to be a great talent. 

Harry is the youngest swimmer I have known at this stages and totally deserves this award."
