Herefordshire

  •  A new year plunge for your pre-schooler…
    We are so excited about our new pre-school swim class for those aged 3-4 at Hereford Leisure Pool. These small group 30-minute sessions for up to four swimmers and led by an in-pool instructor use fun and games to build their water skills and confidence. It’s magical to watch, especially when they pick up a Duckling Award for making that 5m swim unaided. Now running Thursdays at 9.30am and 3pm or Fridays at 9am and 3pm.  Each session costs £10.50 and are bookable in blocks of 13.
