Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety

Hi, I'm Sam! You'll see me on Sunday at Claremont with the JLG group. When I'm not at the pool, I'm mostly likely running around and having a ball with my husband and our children, aged six and four (2021). I am currently studying Education Support and, all going well, will graduate this year 2022. I enjoy running and swimming and also love to potter in the garden... Edibles are my favourite plants to grow, especially flowers! We don't have any pets at the moment but I'm really hoping that there will be chickens scratching around our backyard in the future.
