The new Armed Forces discounts started on 1 April and include benefits like swimming for £1, discounts like 40% off other non-instructed activities such as gym and public ice skating sessions, and also 15% off instructed activities.

To show its appreciation to the Armed Forces, the Council will also be celebrating Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29 June with an event and offers for the wider Armed Forces community including reservists, cadets and their families. More details around Armed Forces Day 2019 here in Telford and Wrekin will be announced in Spring.

Assistant Director: Commercial Services, Fliss Mercer said: “Our Armed Forces families here in the borough are a huge part of our town. We are delighted to be able to extend our existing leisure concession rates to both serving and veteran personnel to help them stay fit and healthy.”

Armed Forces personnel and veterans will be asked to show ID when using the discounted services and they are not available on group activities or block bookings.
