About Us

Set up in 1983 by a group of local parents, our mission is to provide opportunities for the personal development of young people and their families in the local community through participation in a range of water-based activities. We aim to be a positive force for changing lives in a safe and supportive environment. We target disadvantaged, disabled and vulnerable young people, are open 7 days a week throughout the year and had over 4,000 visits in 2022.
