A cut-price half term Junior Swim Membership is on offer for the October school holiday following the success of Erewash Borough Council’s similar summer package.
The membership offers nine days swimming for just £5 and the council has made 60 memberships available – 30 at Ilkeston’s Victoria Park Leisure Centre and 30 and West Park Leisure Centre in Long Eaton.
The half term membership - which runs from 21-29 October inclusive - has been funded by Sport England and is for 11-16-year-olds as part of Sport England’s campaign to encourage young people to be more fit and healthy.
The memberships are available to buy now from both leisure centres and also include entrance to two Halloween pool parties at Victoria Park Leisure Centre in Ilkeston on Saturday 28 October.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“Our summer special proved extremely popular so we are grateful to Sport England for helping us return with this half term offer as part of our ongoing commitment to get young people physically active – particularly in this 11-16-year-old age range.”
