It comes from Fife Sports And Leisure Trust and Fife Council on the back of a winter concessionary funding package .

The trust’s usual holiday offer, which gives juniors aged eight to 17 free swimming during school holidays, is being extended to the first three months of 2023 in light of the cost-of-living crisis The offer went live this week, and it is valid at the Beacon Leisure Centre, Burntisland; Bowhill Swimming Pool; Carnegie Leisure Centre, Dunfermline; Cupar Sports Centre; East Sands Leisure Centre, St Andrews; Cowdenbeath Leisure Centre; Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre; Levenmouth Swimming Pool and Sports Centre, and Michael Woods Sports and Leisure Centre, Monday to Friday during times for public swimming.

“Being able to swim is an important life skill and a great activity to keep you fit and healthy. We hope as many families as possible can take advantage of the offer.”
