A HAMPSHIRE swimming pool is turning into an underwater extravaganza to give children a chance to find out more about life under the sea.

Life-like starfish, crabs, jellyfish and other creatures will be placed in Lymington Seawater Baths in Bath Road to simulate a marine environment on Wednesday, August 27.

Children aged seven to 11 can learn how to snorkel and play games with four 45-minute sessions starting every hour from 11am.

Booking is essential. Contact Polly Whyte on 01489 774426 or email polly.whyte@hiwwt.org.uk.

Parents must remain poolside during the session.

There is a suggested donation of £5 per person on top of the pool entry fee.
