Former journalist Phil Dilks is chairman of Deeping St James Parish Council in south Lincs. Served 8 years (2001-09) on Lincolnshire County Council (Labour lead on Education and Children's Services). Former member Lincolnshire Police Authority (2002-09). Member of Royal Anglian Association (former TA CSM), Co-operative Party, and GMB trade union. Promoted by Phil Dilks, DSJ, PE6 8HD. A personal view and not that of any organisation of which I am a member or associated.
Is this like the last one, over 60 can swim from 9am until 10am.
Free children's swimming for the first twenty five and only at times which the pool will state, in other words times when nobody is using it.
Hope it's available when there's a 'y' in the day too...with such a cynical approach i guess we'd never attempt any changes!!
I'm not old enough (quite) to benefit, but any scheme is better than the one we didn't have before.
Perhaps I'm more of an optimist than Robert, but I see the Government scheme as a genuine attempt to offer free swimming to over 60s and under 16s.
As such, i welcome it.
Let's wait and see how it works and then iron any glitches that crop up...
