Big Swim Day is an opportunity for everyone to demonstrate support for their local community pools. Local people can send a message by enjoying a healthy swim on Friday 24th February 2023.Bring your friends, family and have fun together knowing that you’re part of a wide community effort to back local public swimming facilities.
Demonstrate your support on social media by using #bigswimday and #saveourpools by sharing your stories about why you love to swim.
Wave Leisure Trust is backing the Big Swim Day campaign on 24th February, which aims to demonstrate the level of public support for swimming pools and other public leisure and cultural facilities.
Big Swim Day aims to increase awareness of local swimming facilities within our communities. The rise in energy costs has come on top of financial challenges arising out of closure during the period of the COVID pandemic, as well as continuing public expenditure constraints over many years.
We hope that our regular swimmers will make an additional visit on that Friday, and many of the community who have not been for a while, will make a special visit. Have a swim, bring your friends and family, and share your support for the day on social media using #bigswimday and #saveourpools.
Duncan Kerr, CEO of Wave Leisure Trust said:
“Big Swim Day is the ideal opportunity for people to show support for their local community pools, facing unprecedented financial challenges, and while doing so to have a great time and build mental health and physical wellbeing."
Don't forget to show your support on social media using #bigswimday #saveourpools
