We are a friendly group, offering fun and exercise in the water for people not only with minor physical disabilities but also those who are wheel-chair bound. Common sense tells us that there are many advantages to being physically fit, hence exercising in water can improve quality of life.
The combination of the disabled and able-bodied interacting together, can offer support to each other and encouragement by those who are working with them, even struggling with them, concentrating on what can be achieved and over-coming the difficulties faced.
The pools offer a range of disabled facilities, allowing you to relax with knowledge that the aids are available to encourage independence, respect and enjoyment.
Jedburgh Swimming Pool:- Monday Noon - 1pm
Kelso Swimming Pool:- Wednesday Noon - 1pm (Kelso Pool reopened today, 15/06/12, so we will be back to swimming there on Wednesdays wef Wednesday 20/06/12)
We have helpers to guide the non-swimmers to exercise in water and encourage the able swimmers. Aid with dressing and undressing, if required. They are understanding, resourceful, empathic to our needs.
We attend a local cafe for lunch and a blether, also members welcome to shop at a nearby food store.
With these ingredients we can offer you a tiring but enjoyable day.
