Get in the swim on new programme
1:00pm Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
A NEW swimming programme for youngsters starts in Chester-le-Street next week.
The town’s leisure centre will host Aqualearn sessions and parents can find out more at a taster event on Saturday (September 28).
Aqualearn, which starts on Monday (September 30) provides a weekly swimming lesson and learners get unlimited public swimming sessions.
The programme is open to children of all ages and there are plans to cater for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers with Aquababies and Aquatots sessions.
Durham County Council’s other five pools launched the programme in April.
Parents interested in signing their children up to the Aqualearn programme are invited to the leisure centre between 12.30pm and 1.30pm on Saturday, for a free swim and taster session.
Those who attend will be eligible for a voucher to get their first lesson free, a free swim pass and a balloon.
