August 2020 Update. AT present, Due to Covid-19 we are unsure of when Penguins can resume swimming classes. We are working closely with Lancing College and we will let you know as soon as it is possible for us to return to the water safely. Keep in touch!
Please keep in touch so we can let you know when we are able to resume safely.
