ANYONE for a swim?
From April 1, Hatfield Swim Centre will be offering free swimming to people aged over 60, or 16 and under.
Welwyn Hatfield Council has received funding for the next two years from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, as part of the Government's �140m drive to offer more opportunities for people to get involved in sports.
The centre, managed by Finesse Leisure, previously offered free swimming sessions during the school holidays, an offer still available for selected sessions.
