  • Leigh Cutter

    Since joining Bolton Splash Scheme she's almost unrecognisable!


    "Our eldest daughter had a massive knock in her confidence at another pool to the point that she wouldn't get in the water, since joining Bolton Splash Scheme she's almost unrecognisable, she has come on in leaps and bounds, to the point where it's all she wants to do. Our 3yr old is also swimming and has so much love and trust for her teacher she is fearless in the water, couldn’t be prouder. Thank you, Leigh and Lee Cutter xxx."

    Thanks BSS Leisure Services

    "My 7 year old son Max absolutely loved his football party led by Peter Lambert. It was well organised, max was involved with the planning right the way through and had the best birthday. I wholly recommend this party package for other children who love football. Thanks BSS Leisure Services."

  • Umesh Patel

    The facilities were super. The smiles were plentiful

    "Yesterday my six year old daughter and her 25 friedns had a great birthday party. In my view, in the main this was due to the fantastic organisation and running of the party by Peter and assistant Abi. On the run up to the party he always made himself available to discuss plans and on the day ensured the smooth running from greeting parents and entertaining children with many games. The facilities were super. All in all I would say smiles were plentiful and the party was a hit and if you're thinking of a party yourselves for young children you could do no better than getting in touch with Peter."
