Youngsters will be able to get free swimming taster sessions in Diss.

South Norfolk Council are offering the lessons at Swim School Ducklings in the Diss Leisure Centre.

The half-hour taster sessions for babies and children aged three months to five years are being held every Thursday from December 7, to January 25, between 12pm and 1.30pm.

Councillor Yvonne Bendle, cabinet member for Leisure said: 'Swimming is not only a skill that may one day save your life, it's also a great way to exercise while having fun.

'It's really important that we get children swimming and feeling confident in the water as early as possible and Swim School Ducklings is the perfect way to take the first splash.'
