The Salisbury Journal reports on changes to the prices charged at Five Rivers Leisure Centre as prices rise by 57%. Angry parents are venting their feelings over a massive price increase for swimmers. Children swam for free until last October, then they had to pay £2.30 per swim but now it costs £4.15. One mother said: “They are supposed to be encouraging children to live active lifestyles but people won’t be able to afford to go at those prices. There’s not much else for children to do in Salisbury that is affordable.”more … The good news is that not too far away at Farleigh and District Swimming Club family’s can enjoy wild swimming at a fraction of the costs.
Farleigh membership: You can pay £1 per adult and 50p per (accompanied) child per day until you reach 50% more than the annual sub. No unaccompanied children under 12. Children 12 – 15 can become adult members but they need a parents signature on the application form.
Less than the cost of a leisure pass in Salisbury!
