SWIMMERS have been invited to dive into December discounts at their local pool.

Northumberland County Council is offering discounted entry to 10 of the public swimming pools across the county, including Morpeth and Ponteland.

Swimming sessions will be available for just £1 and the offer is open to people of all ages. It applies on Saturdays and Sundays this month, between 11am and 3pm.

To benefit, people must download a voucher from the council’s website and take it along to hand in at any participating pool.

There is no restriction on the number of vouchers that can be used per household.

County Executive Member for Leisure Neil Bradbury said: “Swimming is an essential life skill, great fun and a fantastic way to help people stay active. This is a great offer and comes at a time when there is extra pressure on the family purse strings.

“We hope it will encourage more people to be more active over the festive period and also prove a helpful way to let the kids splash away a bit of their pre-Christmas energy.”

The initiative is being offered with North Country Leisure, Blyth Valley Arts and Leisure, Tees Active and Leisure Connection.
