International Women’s Day & Important Women in Swimming

Blue Wave Swim School And Significant Dates for Women in 2022

Today is 28th of April 2022 and the second week of our 2022 Summer term.  Easter break out of the way and 1st of May, the Bank Holiday Monday is around the coprner. So what significant dates we had in March and will have in May?!

This month, we celebrated two significate dates; 8th of March- International Women’s Day – and 27th of March which was the Mother’s Day in U.K.

We wouldn’t have been where we are now if we didn’t have such dedicated groups of mums and grandmothers, and our female swimming teachers and coaches who are making learning to swim possible for our swimmers.
