East Riding Leisure Centres to Offer Free Children's Swimming for Easter Holidays

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is offering free swimming sessions for all children aged 16 and under throughout the Easter holidays.

As part of the council’s Help for Households campaign, all children aged 16 and under will be able to enjoy the benefits of swimming from 22 March to 7 April, without it costing a penny.

Free swimming will not be available on Good Friday, 29 March, or Easter Monday, 1 April.

The council will be offering free swimming across East Riding Leisure centres.

The centres offering free swimming sessions are:

  •     Bridlington
  •     Beverley
  •     Driffield
  •     Francis Scaife (Pocklington)
  •     Haltemprice
  •     Hornsea
  •     South Holderness
  •     Withernsea.

Councillor Nick Coultish, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Cabinet member for culture leisure and tourism, said:

“Supporting children and tackling health inequalities are among the council’s top priorities, so we are delighted to offer these free swimming sessions again this Easter.

“This will not only benefit children, but it will also give parents, carers and grandparents the opportunity to have fun and stay active along with them.

“The school holidays can be an expensive time for families, so we hope everyone takes advantage of this fantastic offer, as we continue to support local people through our Help for Households campaign”.

There is no need to book for the free sessions, as they will be on a first come, first served basis.

Under-eights must be accompanied by an adult, and standard adult swimming fees will apply. Children under three years old can swim for free at any time.

The council's Help for Households campaign is dedicated to supporting East Riding residents who need financial aid during the cost of living crisis. To learn more about the help available, visit the Help for Households website.
