The summer of fun is back with 10p swims

1 August 2016

Allerdale Borough Council is repeating its hugely successful 10p swim scheme throughout the school Summer holidays.

Children aged 16 and under will be able to take advantage of the offer at the council-owned swimming pools in Workington, Cockermouth and Keswick. The Wigton Pool and Netherhall Pool in Maryport are also taking part in the scheme.

Encouraging young people to be more active, and providing a safe swimming environment, are key priorities for Allerdale Borough Council and it has joined forces with its sport and leisure partner, Greenwich Leisure Ltd, to run the scheme. For the second year running, Cumbria County Council is also helping fund the scheme.

Dates, times and sessions will vary between the pools taking part so please check with your local pool before visiting. The scheme will continue throughout the school summer holidays. Only residents of Allerdale are eligible for the 10p swims at Keswick pool. On your first visit please bring proof of residency and reception will issue you with a Leisure Access card which you will need to present on any future visits. This card is valid for a year and gives discount on swimming throughout the rest of the year.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Allerdale Borough Council’s deputy leader with the portfolio for Economic Growth, said: “I’m really pleased to see that this ever-popular scheme is back. We are re-launching it not only to help young people to be active and to also stay healthy and fit, but to ensure all children are able to make the most of Summer and the leisure facilities Allerdale has to offer.”

Normal pool adult to child supervision ratios apply at the swim sessions and entry may be denied if the maximum bather numbers are reached. For opening times and other details, please contact the pools direct.
