The smell of the water, the sounds of laughter, the sight of dads belly-flopping and children splashing – a day out at the swimming pool evokes strong memories of family time and fun. Now you can share those memories with our Joy of Swimming Linky and be in with a chance to win a year-long family pass to theme parks and zoos or £250 to spend on swim kit, thanks to British Gas.
Best of all, you can take the children swimming for free with the British Gas Free Swims for Britain programme. The company is providing free swims this summer as part of their support for British Swimming. The offer is for 1 adult and up to 2 children at pools across the UK (you don’t even have to be a British Gas customer to participate) and some pools are even offering free swimming classes or lessons too.
To collect your free swim visit the website here.
1. Post on your blog about your favourite swimming memory. The post can include text (of at least 100 words) or photos with text and the subject matter is anything that evokes the Joy of Swimming for you. It could be the memories of your parents taking you for a swim, your child’s first swimming experience or a funny moment in the pool. Make sure you specify on your post that your entry is for the BritMums Joy of Swimming Competition, sponsored by British Gas. You can grab this badge too.
2. Add the URL of your post in the Linky below by 9 May and you’ll be entered to win one of 4 Merlin family passes, which give year-long entry to theme parks and zoos around the UK, and a grand prize of £250 to spend in JJB Sports.
3. Tweet about your post using #bgfreeswim
You don’t have to enter the Linky to take advantage of the British Gas Free Swims for Britain programme, simply visit British Gas now to swim for free. The offer is valid until 30th August 2012.
