£1 swim to return to borough leisure centres as part of healthy summer programme

Multi-sport camps, gymnastics camps, dance camps, water sports activities, MUGA summer sports and the All Stars summer scheme are also planned

A £1 swim scheme is to return to Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s leisure centres this summer, it has been confirmed.

The issue was raised at May’s council meeting by Alderman Gareth Wilson and at a meeting of council’s leisure and community services committee on Monday.

Councillors were given confirmation the scheme will be part of the council’s ‘Shake up Summer’ campaign.

The campaign aims to support the health and wellbeing of young people in the borough and will see a wide range of activities take place that have been organised by the council’s health and recreation, community development, environmental services and tourism and arts culture teams.

Activities included in the programme will include £1 swims as well as multi-sport camps, gymnastics camps, dance camps, water sports activities, MUGA summer sports programmes and the All Stars summer scheme amongst others.

Councillors were also advised that officers are still in the process of finalising plans so additional activities may be added in due course if funding and resources allow.
