Mrs Stocker, from Leominster: "My sons Aaron and Alfie both attend swimming lessons at Halo. Aaron has special needs and I've noticed a real improvement in his coordination since he started lessons. We're going on holiday to Center Parcs this year, and I feel so much happier knowing that both boys are better swimmers and will be able to enjoy their time in the pool thanks to Halo."
