Kingswim Bayside Centre Manager Daragh, tells us what he loves doing in Summer!
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m Daragh and I’ve been with Kingswim for five years in many different roles! I started managing the Bayside centre in August 2019 and have loved meeting the many swimmers that visit each week! Outside of work, you can catch me in a local theatre – in the audience or on the stage.
What is your favourite summer destination?
While I work in the Bayside region, I live and was brought up on the Mornington Peninsula. I love spending time at home during summer, the sunset views overlooking Oliver’s Hill at Frankston beach are beyond compare!
Where will we find you during summer?
While I haven’t been in Bayside very long, I love driving up Beach Rd on the way to work. I think I can safely say you’ve got some pretty good choices in Bayside!
Do you have a favourite childhood memory of summer?
When I was little, we’d head across the bay on the Sorrento-Queenscliff ferry, and spend the day in Queenscliff. Lots of fun, and a great day out!
And finally, what’s your summer tip?
I’m Irish-born, so while the sun and heat are what’s great about summer, I’d say keep cool where you can! If that means swimming in a pool or at the beach, remember to slip, slop and slap and be very safe around water – especially with kids in tow!
