One of Water Babies’ most successful franchisees, Tamsin Brewis, is celebrating the 15th anniversary of her business.

Franchising can be the route to a fulfilling and profitable career for many, but Tamsin Brewis of Water Babies is also demonstrating that it offers the chance for a long career as well. The ambitious franchisee started running a swimming franchise unit through Water Babies back in 2004 and recently celebrated its 15th successful anniversary.

To mark the milestone year, she revisited some of her first students to find out how they’re doing now. And she wasn’t disappointed with what she discovered either, as among her former students is Naeve Pountney, who now swims at national level. Speaking about her experience at Water Babies, Naeve said:

“I might be 10 years too old for Water Babies lessons, but the lessons made a lasting impression on my life! When I turned nine, I was asked to swim for my local club, and by 11, I’d competed at county level. Before I turned 12, I competed at regionals too. I’ve made the Irish National Championships twice and, this year, I won bronze in the 100-metre backstroke. I’m still a water baby, through and through!”

Local mother Annie also sang Tamsin’s praises and son Jacob, now 14, explained the impact her lessons had on his sporting confidence.

“I started swimming at Water Babies because my parents thought it was really important that I felt confident in the water. Water Babies has definitely left a lasting impression on me – I even carried on with my swimming for years after Water Babies, competing at county level. One thing that has really stayed with me is the confidence in my abilities, and that’s not just on the field, but during my time at school too.”

Speaking about her time as a Water Babies franchisee, Tamsin said:

“I’m very proud to have helped nurture and develop such talented and determined young adults. It’s lovely to hear how they’ve been getting on since their days of swimming with me. We’re really looking forward to celebrating such a momentous anniversary next month and hope to see some familiar faces at our birthday party, at 360 Play in Milton Keynes in mid-November. I don’t know where the last 15 years have gone but I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed every minute!”
