Teresa wins STA's Sir Henry Pike Award

Water Lilies owner Teresa (Treacle) Griffin has been awarded a national award by the Swimming Teacher's Association (STA) for her outstanding contribution to swimming and water safety education over the last 12 months. The trustees of the STA had no hesitation in announcing Teresa as this year's recipient of the award.

Roger Millward, STA's Chief Executive said: "Teresa has demonstrated huge commitment to provding excellent swimming teaching provision in Norfolk and Suffolk and has worked tirelessly to ensure that people in the area have access to the quality teaching they need."

Teresa is thrilled to have won the Sir Henry Pike Memorial award. "I really love what I do with the children, the instructors, pool owners and others and I really did not expect an award. I am extremely pleased!"

Teresa received her award on Saturday 23rd November at a special presentation in Harleston, Norfolk. Click here for an article and photograph published by the Eastern Daily Press.

Congratulations to Treacle and all at Water Lilies Swimming School.

"Reading about how you have built up a successful swimming school and inspiring many people to take up swimming, helping to keep themselves safe, fit and healthy deserves to be recognised by this prestigious award."

Dr Dan Poulter, MP for Central Suffolk & North Ipswich
