Swimming pools in Sudbury and Hadleigh invite youngsters to experience free sessions over summer holidays




Leisure facilities in Sudbury and Hadleigh are offering children free swimming sessions over the summer, as part of an initiative aimed at encouraging young people to stay fit and active.

Youngsters aged 16 and under will be able to swim at Kingfisher Leisure Centre in Sudbury and Hadleigh Pool and Leisure Centre free of charge between Saturday, July 20, and Sunday, September 1, to coincide with the school summer holidays.

Derek Davis, cabinet member for communities for Babergh District Council, said: “I’m pleased that we’re able to offer these free swims across Babergh, through our partner Abbeycroft Leisure.

“It’s important that children are given the opportunity to get active over the summer holidays and what better way to cool off from the summer heat than taking a dip in the pool.

“I hope the younger members of our community take this opportunity to have some fun while remaining active and healthy too.”

Tracey Loynds, the development director at Abbeycroft Leisure, added: “We’re delighted to support Babergh with the free swimming initiatives, which encourages young people to be more active.

“We look forward to seeing residents at our centres in the next few months.”

Customers are advised to check the pool programme on each centre’s website for the times of public swimming sessions.
