Free Summer Swimming Returns to North Lincs

Andrew has provided an update on North Lincolnshire Council's latest Summer Daze, free swimming initiative. 

Andrew reports, "I am delighted that we will be making good on our election pledge in North Lincs by once again funding free swimming sessions for THOUSANDS of kids this summer

"Thousands of free swimming sessions will be available for youngsters across North Lincolnshire for the whole six-week summer holiday.

"All six of the council-run pools will open their doors for the entire summer break - with free sessions available to all under 16s. 

"The sessions will take place at The Pods in Scunthorpe, Ancholme Leisure Centre in Brigg, Axholme North Leisure Centre in Crowle, Baysgarth Community Hub in Barton-upon-Humber, Riddings Community Hub in Scunthorpe and at Epworth Swimming Pool.

"I joined Isle of Axholme North Councillors Julie Reed and John Briggs in Crowle last Friday to launch the initiative."

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council: "It is not the first time we have done this but we expect it will be a welcome boost this year.

"We know global inflation is really having an impact on peoples' pockets and hard-working parents across the area are having to respond.

As a council we are investing to support families and these free sessions - which are available across the area - will keep children entertained and active and will not cost parents a penny."
