David Rees AM welcomes Free Swimming for Veterans

David Rees AM welcomes launch a new national scheme to provide free swimming for veterans and Armed Forces personnel in Wales.

Free Swimming for Armed Forces and veterans is the latest initiative to be launched by the Welsh Government as part of its Package of Support for the Armed Forces Community.

The scheme is being delivered by all Local Authorities in Wales to enable and encourage veterans and our armed forces personnel to enjoy swimming as a form of physical activity and in recognition of the service they have given to their country.

David Rees Said: “This is a great scheme, I like many residents in Aberavon believe strongly that we need to recognise the service our armed forces have given and are giving”

“This scheme is another way in which the Welsh Labour Government is recognising the contribution they make, to our country and this community.  I hope members of the armed forces community and veterans in Neath Port Talbot will be able to make full use of this opportunity to exercise at any one of our swimming pools.
