Congratulations Harvey!

Strode Leisure Centre's swimmer of the year

After a challenging 2021 we wanted to round the year off with some good news stories.  We asked all of our Swimming Teachers to nominate those distinctive, very special swimmers who deserved a bit of recognition.

They were asked to identify swimmers on our lesson programmes (children and adults) who have displayed positive attitudes, unyielding determination or, have put in efforts over and above their peers.  They may have overcome personal adversity or achieved something unexpected or challenging. 

Harvey Cross - Strode Leisure Centre Swimmer of the year 2021

'Harvey came to swimming lessons late, during which time it was discovered that he additional needs.

Harvey has preserved with his lessons even when his self esteem was at it's lowest.

Harvey has been very diligent and is now making good progress, he has not given up even faced with challenges.
