A leisure centre in Derbyshire has been shining the light on one of their swimming teachers as part of a national celebration day.
Stephanie is one of the latest swim teachers to join the team at Alfreton Leisure Centre.
A spokesman at the centre said: “For the recent National Learn To Swim Day, we wanted to shine a light on Stephanie – our pool-newbie turned swim teacher.
“She started her swimming journey with us when she was five-years-old, and her story is proof of how the longer you can stay in lessons, the better.
“After completing her lessons, she then went on to do the Rookie Lifeguard course. Now, she’s helping other people develop a love for the pool as a swim teacher.”
The spokesman continued: “We know that learning to swim is vital, and Stephanie’s story does a great job of taking this one step further by showing how you can be safe in the water while having fun.
“Feeling inspired? Learn more about our swimming lessons and join online at”
