Keech Swim Sessions @ Keech Hospice | England | United Kingdom

Keech Swim Sessions

Swim Sessions are at Keech Hospice, Great Bramingham Lane, Luton, Beds. LU3 3NT and are from 4pm to 5pm on alternate Saturdays

Keech swimming pool is designed to cater for the needs of people with additional needs of all ages.  It provides hoists, ramps and specially designed changing rooms.  The pool has water fountains, sensory lighting and a sound system.  The water temperature is maintained at a higher level than public pools and the air temperature is controlled to avoid the “shiver” effect and coldness when getting out.

Each session costs £3.50 per swimmer and is available to the whole family.  Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult whilst in the water.

Swimming sessions must be pre-booked and paid for in advance.  You can book on-line or by calling the office on 01582 420800.  Please do read Keech Swim Policy to ensure safe use for you and others.

Pre-booked sessions are non refundable.  However, if you notify the office on 01582 420800 of a cancellation by Friday at 5pm (the day before the swimming session), your payment will be carried over to the next available session.  If you do not attend and do not notify FUN of the cancellation you will lose the payment and no session will be re-allocated
