Rediscovered the joy of swimming this summer?
We know - you tell us every September - that the highlight of your summer was the icy but exhilarating dip in a river, or the afternoon on the beach running in and out of the waves with your kids, or the delicious days by the pool on a holiday away from home. Water always wins in the summer break.
Before you put your costume away, we want to invite you to extend the enjoyment (and the brilliant benefits) by swimming all the way through Autumn…and Winter and Spring!
During the month of September we’re offering swim memberships with free enrolment, which means you save £10 and can enjoy a daily swim for under £1.
To take up this swimtastic offer simply visit your local halo swimming pool or to join online use promocode FREESWIM at the checkout. Offer available across Halo Bridgend County sites.

Our brilliant lessons with the charity Level Water offer children who have a physical disability one to one tuition, and boy has eight year old Thomas Williams shown us why this works.
