PEOPLE under 16 and over 60 will be able to register for two years of free swimming this weekend.

Following two successful trial periods, Waveney District Council is now offering free swimming to under 16s and over 60s. The first registration event takes place this weekend (March 7/8) at both Water Lane leisure centre in Lowestoft and Bungay pool, from 10am to 3pm. The second registration event runs on March 14 and 15.

Anyone wishing to register needs to bring a passport-sized photograph and proof of age. Registration forms will be available on the day from the pools or can be picked up in advance.

Swimmers who signed up for a similar scheme in 2008 will have to re-register as this is a new initative.
