The 18th – 26th June 2016 is Drowning Prevention Week - the national campaign organised by the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) to promote water safety messages and help reduce incidents of drowning which currently stand at one death every 20 hours in the UK.
Our parent company, Butterflies Healthcare Ltd were finalists in the recent Cherwell Business Awards 2016 at Begbroke Science Park in Oxfordshire. The marquee was beautifully dressed and the stage lit up for our host Kirsty Leahy of Banbury Sound. Here is our optician, James Sutton MCOptom receiving the award from Adrian Lockwood.
Our optician James this morning talked about National Water Safety Week (6th-10th June) and prescription goggles on the radio with the Swimming Teachers' Association.
Did you know that 80% of people surveyed didn’t know prescription goggles exist?

Welcome to our first blog at prescription swimming goggles. We are a family run business that was founded in 2004 and incorporated in 2006. We are owned by the founders, James and Michelle Sutton and have 4 ladies working here, Tracy, Aimee, Julie and Suzanne. We started life in James and Michelle’s front room of their home before we realised we had a good idea that was really taking off and needed more space to hold stock, and some staff!
