Southport hospital is offering supervised exercise classes in its very own swimming pool.

The pool is part of the North West Spinal Injuries Centre but is available for six sessions a week to members of the public.

Class supervisor Lin Griffiths said: “We cater for all abilities but the classes are ideal for people who are non-swimmers or nervous in the water.

“The pool gently shelves from 3ft to 5ft deep and is kept at a constant 34C. Most of the sessions are mixed sex but we have a ladies’ only class on Monday.”

There is a small charge of £3 per head for each session.

Anyone interested in taking part should call 01704 704059 and ask for Lin or Sue Hall during the day or John Thompson at evenings and the weekends.
