Margate’s Swim Safe kicks off with a flying start!

Margate’s Swim Safe kicked off with a flying start today (Monday 22nd July) by welcoming participants to it’s first session of the Summer.   With the school summer holiday’s in full swing for the majority of families’ children flocked to Margate main sands to learn for free how to swim outdoors and to stay safe in the water.  As the temperatures hit the twenty eight degree mark the local MP for Thanet North, Sir Roger Gale joined one of the sessions enjoying a dip in the sea whilst learning how to float to live.  The session was also joined by Councillor George Kup.


Sir Roger Gale said in his Facebook post “I learnt alot about how to stay safe in the water. It’s a great opportunity to make sure our children enjoy the water safely and sessions are completely free”.

Swim Safe runs every Monday and Friday throughout the summer holidays. Participants must be aged 7-14 years and able to swim 25 metres unaided.
