Adults swim for free at Harpenden and Westminster Lodge this spring

Both Harpenden Swimming Pool and Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre have launched a series of free-swimming lessons for adult learners.

  • The leisure centres have a number of free places available on the 4-week beginners swimming courses that are taking place over February and March
  • There are a variety of sessions on offer for non-swimmers who have not had lessons at either centre before, including daytime and evening lessons at a range of times throughout the week


Scott Machen, Contract Manager at the centres, said:
These four week courses have been put together to ensure there are no restrictions so we can get as many adults from the local communities learning the basics in swimming, having fun in the pool and keeping fit… for free.
