Free swimming extended in Potters Bar

PENSIONERS and youngsters who have enjoyed free swimming lessons in Potters Bar can now take advantage of the sessions for a further 12 months.

Hertsmere Borough Council has decided to continue the free swimming sessions until March 2011.

Those over the age of 60 or children under the age of 16 will benefit from the sessions – which started in April last year and were due to end in September – at Furzefield Leisure Centre.

They are available for seven hours each week.

A council spokeswoman said: “Regular swimming has specific health benefits and can contribute towards an improved quality of life so this is great news.”
