Children can learn how to snorkel from the safety of a swimming pool, thanks to a new ten-week course.

The course will start at Bowling Pool next month for children aged ten and over.

Bradford Aquatics are organising the sessions, aimed at youngsters who can already swim 25 metres.

The half-hour lessons will run on Saturdays from 11am and Thursdays from 4.30pm, with the first session starting on Saturday February 8.

It costs £50 for the full ten-week course, but a discount price for Passport to Leisure Card Holders is available at £37.50.

Places are limited so booking is required. To book, or to request more information, phone Bowling Pool on (01274) 727 577.
