Swim star to deliver water safety message.

A SWIMMING star who won two medals in last year's Commonwealth Games will urge youngsters to learn about water safety during a national campaign which comes to Coventry tomorrow.

Terri Dunning will be urging youngsters from city schools to learn how to protect their own lives and the lives of other people by learning water safety and life-saving skills at the Get Safe 4 Summer roadshow, at Coventry Leisure Centre from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

The Get Safe 4 Summer campaign has been organised by the Amateur Swimming Association in conjunction with the Royal Life Saving Society UK and the National PE, School Sports and Club Links strategy.

Its aim is to cut the number of drownings - there are about 600 every year, or one every 17 hours.

Terri will tell young participants at the event of her experiences and of the need to learn about all aspects of water safety.
