Adults and children will be able to enjoy a swim in the pool for less money this summer at leisure centres across Cornwall.

Better leisure centres will be offering all day Sunday swims for adults and children at a reduced cost of £3 from Sunday, July 31 to Sunday, September 4. Usually it costs £6 for adults and £4 for children over the age of three.

The only exception is Newquay Leisure World, which will be offering its discounted swim sessions on Friday evenings from 6.30pm to 8pm.

GLL runs the centres on behalf of Cornwall Council, and it said as a not-for-profit social enterprise managers were keen to make swimming as affordable as possible for the whole family during school holidays.

The offer is being funded by a grant of £65,000 from the Government’s Contain Outbreak Fund (COMF).

Ben Wilkinson, GLL general senior manager, said: “Cost of living increases are impacting everyone but developing water skills and confidence is critical in a county with so much wonderful coastline.

“We are working closely with Active Cornwall on community initiatives like this because we want to make our facilities accessible to as many people as we can.

"Local children may well have been learning to swim with their school and it’s important for them to be able to practice with their parents and lead an active lifestyle from an early age, with all the health benefits that brings.

“Prices for most things seem to be going up all the time so it’s nice to be able to announce a significant price reduction.”

There are Better leisure centres in Helston, St Ives, Truro, Newquay, St Austell, Bodmin, Wadebridge, Bude, Launceston, Saltash and Liskeard.

Membership prices remain as normal.
