YOUNG Brendan Salton is a real water baby! The two and a half year old from Freethorpe gained his five metre swimming badge recently at the Water Babies swim school in Norwich.

Mum Rachel said: “Brendan has been to swimming lessons every week since he was four months old. He absolutely loves the water and would dive in constantly if he had the chance! He has been swimming underwater since he was four months old and is now starting to learn to retrieve objects from the bottom.”

Rachel added: “Thanks must go to his teacher, Sarah Heatley, who is so enthusiastic and dedicated to teaching babies and children to swim.”

Now Brendan is working towards his 10 metres badge in between playing water games and diving for toys!

And he'll soon be joined in the fun and games by younger brother Callum, who is nine months old - and who is also swimming well, much to the delight of mum and dad Andy and Rachel.
