Free swimming for everyone at all council leisure centres!

The run-up to Christmas can sometimes see stress levels rising with all of the planning, organisation, shopping, wrapping and cooking! So this year, why not jump off the Christmas wheel for an hour or two before the big day and enjoy a bit of exercise and fun with a free swim at one of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s leisure centres?

The free swim is available for everyone on Saturday 23rd December at:

So why not take a bit of time out and experience the calming effect of the water, give your mood a boost and get a little bit of exercise before launching back into the festivities? Or enjoy some quality time with the family away from the hustle and bustle of the shops? We know which one the kids would prefer!

Swimming is proven to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses as well as helping with stress levels and being great fun – sounds like the perfect start to the holidays!

So, call into any of the five leisure centres during their normal opening hours and enjoy a bit of me-time or family time before the Christmas fun kicks in!
