Wirksworth Swimming Pool to host free taster sessions on Sunday 27th April 2014

It is two years since Wirksworth Swimming Pool became a charity and in that time we have come a long way.  Our learn to swim programme alone, has seen pupil numbers rise from just 140 to over 300. We’re not complacent though and know there is still work to do: to meet our target to be self-financing by 2015.

Our Pool Manager Glyn Booth explains: “In 2012, when the pool transferred to a charity, we received financial support to help us operate in our first years. This money ends in 2015 and we must be self-financing for the pool to survive. We already have many loyal customers but need to encourage more pool users to ensure we cover costs once the funding ends.”

To help boost pool users, we are offering anyone who has not tried the pool before a free taster session during an open afternoon on Sunday 27th April 2014. Between 1:00pm and 4:15pm, visitors will be able to try Toddler or Beginner Learn to Swim classes, a child’s Activity Hour, AquaDance for 14 years plus or an adult AquaFit session. For details of times and sessions please contact the pool.

Due to limited numbers in each session, anyone interested in attending the open afternoon is encouraged to register for a place by calling: 01629 825704 or emailing us by clicking here

Free taster sessions are available on a first come first serve basis.
