Mummyzilla’s Swimming Blog

Wow, it seems the end of an era.  Only a year ago we took our tentative steps into the pool with the lovely Vic & Helen.  A year on with a lot of laughter, fun and splashing the little ones have wibble wobbled on the jelly board, chased fish round the pool, swam underwater through hoops and even performed their own photo shoot.

Poor Daddy’s perception of parenthood was changed when he had to trot around in the pool with daughter sandwiched between him and a flotation  pole, both clinging on – daughter to keep afloat and Daddy to his sanity singing ‘Horsey, horsey,don’t you stop’!

Joking aside, Vic and Helen’s lessons are structured, safe and above all fun.  The reason we chose Vic and Helen was that we wanted our daughter not to be frightened of the water and with Vic and Helen, nothing is forced.  Repetition builds up the child’s confidence and it’s great that the parents don’t have to be great swimmers too – another reason for introducing our daughter so early on.

All in all, it has been a great family activity to do together at the weekend.  You couldn’t wish for a better pair of instructors as both have young families of their own. With their swimming skills and warm and friendly personalities, it makes for winning combination.

Looking forward to seeing you back in the pool in September Vic and Helen

Off to the beach

Only a couple of weeks to go before we will all be hitting the beach (weather permitting). I don’t know about you, but we seem to need the services of a small car to transport our paraphernalia to the beach these days.

Last year whilst on holiday with another family, it reached crisis levels; 3+ fishing rods, 3 surfboards, 5 bodyboards, 5 wetsuits, parasol, towels etc… It is fair to say it was our daily workout, especially since it involved traversing a cliff.

This year I will be investing in a beach trolley or a second husband!


Another product I love are these beach shades although I have yet to find a UK stockist. No more flying parasols waiting to harpoon you, at the slightest whiff of a breeze.




For safe summer swimming, please don’t forget to have a look at the RLSS water safety on holiday advice


Have a wonderful summer.

Vic and Helen

seaWelcome to our blog. We must admit this is a first for both of us and didn’t even know what a blog was until fairly recently.

We do however have a massive amount of enthusiasm for all things to do with swimming, from discovering fantastic new products, to helpful hints and new water sports for you and your family to try out.

So our plan is to let you know about the things that we chat and laugh about in our coffee breaks (which our accountant tells us there are too many of) and to keep you informed of any new local information / offers to do with children. So if you have anything you think our clients would like to know about, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either Vic or myself.

We will keep things short, fun and informative, so please look out for our upcoming blogs:
RLSS Drowning Prevention Week at Wrington School, Long summer days at the beach (hopefully) and Bristol’s exciting plans for a Wavegarden.
