A NEW swimming school has opened near South Molton. The Academy of Swimming and Training offers lessons at the swimming pool at the Blackcock Inn at Molland on the edge of Exmoor.Founder Debbie Stenning said: "There are very few facilities for young people in this rural part of Devon. "We want to offer children in the rural communities on the Exmoor side of South Molton the chance to swim locally, rather than make long journeys to public pools. "We are very lucky to be able to use the pool at the Blackcock Inn at Molland. It is a good size and easy to get to. "There is also a great children's play area on the same site that siblings not involved in our swimming lessons could use. "We hope to attract children from areas such as North Molton, Rackenford, Bratton Flemming, Withypool, Exford, Simonsbath, Knowstone and also Bampton and Dulverton."For more details, contact Stenning on (01598) 760562 or 07975 853648, or email: info@astswimschool.co.uk
