Hydra Information Update - Lea Manor Recreation Centre

Welcome to our April edition of Hydra customers information updates

The following information about Hydra courses at Lea Manor Recreation Centre. We want to ensure you are aware of any changes and important information. Including updates on the upcoming courses, 3 and 4.

All courses are continuously assessed which means that we can develop every child at their own pace. Once the teacher identifies that the standards have been met, parents/guardians will be informed to contact reception to arrange a move to the next level. Simple!


Unfortunately rising costs of things like utilities mean that we’ve had to make a small price increase (effective from course 3) as follows:


  • Ducklings & Stages 1-7 new price for the 10 week block will be £51
  • Stages 8-10 new price for the 10 week block will be £61
  • Adults new price for the 10 week block will be £66

Hydra swimming lessons


You may have noticed some ongoing improvement works at Lea Manor Recreation Centre. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, the project is nearing completion and we are hoping to be back to normal by the end of April.

The renovation work to the changing rooms, toilets and viewing gallery is now complete.  Thank you for all your kind comments regarding these improvements. We have also invested in modernising our Building Management System, the main benefits was to reduce Energy Wastage and our Carbon Footprint.


Our swimmers will feel the benefits on poolside with the air temperature set to a constant 28 degrees regardless of the outside temperature. In addition a new pool hoist will be installed over the next few weeks.


Re-enrolment dates 

Week commencing 5th May 2018 for course 3 and 14th July 2018 for course 4

Enrolments will last a week starting from the Saturday and running through to the following Friday evening. 

If you don’t re-enrol within this period unfortunately your space is not guaranteed and could be offered to another person. Please remember to make payment either via the email link or at reception, or alternatively by ringing the centre.

We appreciate that traffic and weather conditions can sometimes be an issues but lateness is becoming an increasing issue. Please be aware that lateness does affect your child’s time in the pool and can cause disruption to lessons.


Parent Portal

When accessing the Parent Portal through a mobile device, you need to scroll to the bottom of the initial page and switch to “full website” when signing in. Changes to Parent Portal are planned for mid-summer which should make the system much easier to use.


Booster Sessions

Please keep an eye out for any booster sessions during the school holidays at all three centres. These are designed to focus on problematic areas of the learn to swim framework. 


To ensure everything goes swimmingly...
