Closed petition Reinstate free swimming for pensioners
Restricting free swims to certain times means there are more people in pools at the same time, therefore restricting serious swimming. As a pensioner I no longer have regular swims.
Coming out of the present lockdown many pensioners are in need of the exercise only swimming can provide, from experience most pensioners use the pools at quiet and off-peak times. With the millions of pounds being spent trying to save the economy the amount of money saved by withdrawing the free swimming is pointless.
