Swimming for young and old in Kimberley

PEOPLE who are under 15 or over 60 will be able to swim for free in Kimberley this summer after councillors voted to re-introduce free swimming in August.

Broxtowe Borough Council will offer free swimming in receipt of a valid junior or concessionary Broxtowe Leisure Card throughout August at both Kimberley and Bramcote Leisure Centres.

Cabinet member for arts, leisure and culture, Cllr Richard Robinson said: “After visiting both centres last month, I’ve seen first hand just how popular and well-used the centres are and I am sure this will be very much welcomed by local residents.”

For more information and to apply for your Broxtowe Leisure Card today, download the application form at www.broxtowe.gov.uk/leisure or contact your local leisure centre.

Eastwood Sports Centre in Mansfield Road can be reached on 01773 770 099 and Kimberley Leisure in Newdigate Street can be reached on 0115 917 3366.
