A children's swimming club, which lost its roof in a storm two weeks ago, is appealing for a temporary home.

Get Wet Swim School, based at Salendine Nook High School pool, has had to postpone all lessons after the roof blew off on February 12.

Terrified youngsters were forced to abandon their lesson as sections of the pool roof came away in winds of up to 70mph.

While nobody was hurt, club owner Dominic Hegarty says his business is feeling the pain as no lessons mean no income.

Get Wet is now appealing for other schools, sports centres, hotels, gyms and other businesses with pools to provide them with a temporary home.

Work to repair the Salendine Nook pool roof has started, but it is not expected to be completed before March 10.

Dominic said: “The kids were three weeks into six weeks of lessons when it happened so they’ve still got three weeks of lessons.

“It’s costing me; I’ve no other income and I’ve a mortgage to pay for.

“I’ve some swimmers that will travel the length and breadth of the country to swim but some parents don’t have cars.

“If someone can offer us a pool at Fixby, Fartown, Almondbury or anywhere like that, that would be good. It would be preferably closer to Salendine Nook but I think people would travel to Brighouse or Halifax.”
