British Gas has teamed up with more than 750 swimming pools around the country to offer free swims. It is easy to take them up on it: visit the website, enter your postcode, find a participating pool near you and grab a voucher.
I checked this out, and it isn’t bad. My local pool isn’t participating – but a well-to-do health club in the next town along is.
You don’t have to be a British Gas customer to take part: at the time of writing, more than 100,000 people have signed up. You can choose from free swims, aqua aerobics classes, aqua tots classes or swimming taster lessons. The vouchers are valid for up to one adult and up to two children. The swims have to be booked before 30 August 2012.
