Our “charitable objects” are listed as “the promotion of good health by the provision of swimming lessons, water therapy, career respite and social activities to people of all ages who have a physical, mental health or learning disabilities (and their careers) in the Wimborne and surrounding East Dorset area, in a safe and friendly environment (which is not normally provided by statutory authorities)”
