Last day of free swims

Have your say

FREE swimming for children and pensioners is being withdrawn in Barnsley to save council cash.

Barnsley Council is cutting the offer from tomorrow after the decision was approved at a full council meeting last week.

Pensioners holding the Mi card will still be able to access free bus travel 9am and 9pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends.

A council spokesman said: “Cabinet recommended in December the council should end free swimming with effect from January 11.”
