Swimming goggles are an essential piece of equipment for all children learning to swim or who just want to have fun in the water. When children are learning to swim, it is important that they feel as relaxed as possible. Being able to see clearly underwater will give your child confidence, and allow them to stay in the water for longer.

Our range of children’s swimming goggles feature a variety of designs to ensure children find the perfect fit for them, but finding the right fit for kids isn’t always easy.

My latest challenge is to swim the River Nene... a kind of David Walliams swim but in my local river. The plan is to swim 65.6 miles over 9 days, from Northampton to Whittlesey. I am stopping at the Dog in a Doublet where the water becomes tidal. I have completed a channel swim equivalent in the river Nene before, 22 miles in one day which took 16 hours 15 mins.
Why do this? I am raising money for two projects that
