44 days ago

Armed forces veterans in Carmarthenshire are being offered discounted rates to use the council’s leisure centres.

Carmarthenshire County Council is keen to continue its commitment to the Armed Forces Community Covenant and to both serving and former members of the community by promoting  discount cards for ex-forces members.

Veterans can use their discount cards at any Carmarthenshire leisure centre in order to receive discounts and free benefits.

Veterans simply need to present a valid forces card to register on the system to gain instant access to all the available benefits.

There are several benefits, including free swimming during recreational swimming times.

Veterans can also enjoy up to 40 per cent discount off activities including gym sessions, fitness classes, and court bookings during off peak hours.

Cllr Peter Hughes Griffiths, Executive Board Member for Culture, Sport and Tourism, said: “Being able to offer our local veterans these benefits is positive and as part of our commitment to the Armed Forces Community, we can support their physical and mental well-being.”

Cllr David Jenkins, Armed Forces Champion, added: “This is a commitment through the Armed Forces Covenant made to the serving and former members of the Armed Forces and their families working and residing in Carmarthenshire.”
