Wizzo - Coming Soon to a Venue Near you

Jasmine was over the moon (as you can see) to be the first to have her picture taken with Wizzo.

Wizzo (or rather his cardboard cutout look-alike) will be making an appearance at your swimming pool this term.

Take a great pic with Wizzo, post it on our Facebook Page and you'll be entered into a draw to win a FREE holiday swimming course.
