I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic swimming lesson Charlie had with Aqua Vie. After a previous very bad experience it was great that he felt so happy to be in the water and Jan has given him things to practise whilst we’re on holiday over the half term. It’s a big relief that we’ve found a teacher that understands what he needs!
