Kids can still swim for free

Have your say

FREE swimming is to continue in a South Yorkshire town - for youngsters under eight.

Many councils are axing the scheme, which was available for children and pensioners, as budget cuts bite. But under-eights in Rotherham can continue to take advantage of the offer when accompanied by a parent or guardian aged over 18.

The free swimming is available at Rotherham Leisure Complex, Maltby Leisure Centre, Aston-cum-Aughton Leisure Centre and Wath upon Dearne Leisure Centre.
