Children will get the chance to swim with professional mermaid Hannah Pearl at Diss Leisure Centre on Wednesday, December 19 at 3.30pm.

Miss Pearl (real name Hannah Griffiths) is a Miss Mermaid UK 2017 pageant finalist and studied at the Philippine Mermaid Swimming School.

South Norfolk Council cabinet member councillor Yvonne Bendle said: 'What better way to encourage a love of swimming than by giving children the chance to meet and swim with a mermaid.

'Our fun sessions are a great way to keep the kids active over the Christmas holidays and having Hannah Pearl there will make it extra special.'
