A St Albans businesswoman who started swimming classes for babies and young children has been shortlisted for two national awards.

Ravneet Bermi, who lives in St Albans, set up Puddle Ducks West Herfordshire and Luton four years ago to provide swimming lessons for children under 10 at seven different venues. Puddle Ducks now teaches 94 swimming sessions a week to 600 young swimmers.

She is now a finalist in two categories at the Best Business Women Awards 2018 - best business woman working with children and families and best business.

Ravneet said: “The team and I are overjoyed to have been shortlisted within two categories of this year’s Best Business Women Awards. Each day we strive to make each child’s journey of learning to swim the best it can be. To be awarded for the work we do is wonderful.”

The awards will be held at Tewin Bury Farm in Welwyn on Thursday, October 11.
