Free swimming!

February 9, 2012

Sam loves swimming – love love loves it. He’s been going to swimming lessons for the past 3 months and is doing really well. Craig takes him most weeks too to practice what he is learning in class & I really hope he grows up to be a water baby. I adored swimming for many years, competing for my school and town in galas and winning quite a few medals (no one ever believes that anymore but it’s true!!)

Since the government have stopped the free swimming sessions for children a few months ago it has annoyed us when we’ve had to pay. To me it seems a fairly basic need for children to be able to swim but that might just be my opinion.

Currently, and in time for half term, Kelloggs are giving away free kid’s swim vouchers across their family & children’s cereal range, including Coco Pops, Rice Krispies & Corn Flakes. One voucher admits one child (under 16 years) to one free swim session when accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over. Over 700 pools are participating and you can find your nearest pool by visiting the website

You might see us there too! We’ll be the ones in the attractive swimming caps. J
