Free Under 16s Swimming North Lincolnshire AND East Riding

Free swimming sessions are being made available to residents aged 16 and under in North Lincolnshire and East Riding of Yorkshire this summer.

Andrew comments, "As residents may remember, providing free summer holidays swimming sessions to keep young people engaged and active over the summer hols has been a key local Conservative pledge in North Lincs for many years now. This year is no different and free swimming is back.

"However, I am also pleased to report that, following the change of leadership at East Riding Council which has seen Goole North Councillor, Anne Handley, become Leader and Goole North Councillor, Nick Coultish, become Cabinet Member for Leisure, we now have free swimming sessions in East Riding pools too!

"I have worked with Anne and Nick on this proposal as we have been frustrated in recent years not to have this option available in the East Riding as it is in North Lincs."

Your local Conservative team is proud to have delivered this policy in both Council areas and we hope to build on it in future years.

The free sessions are limited but are a good start and at the very least provide some free entertainment over the summer holidays at a time when global cost of living pressures are impacting family budgets.
