The goodwill gesture has been made to mark Armed Forces Day, which takes place on Saturday June 26.

Jon Bird, Everyone Active’s general manager, said: “We’re determined to support the people in our local community, including service men and women.

“This initiative helps us to show our appreciation for the work they do.

"Whether it’s a workout in the gym, a few leisurely lengths of the pool or spending quality times with their loved ones during our family fun swims, we hope they are able to take advantage of the wealth of activities we offer.”

All Armed Forces personnel will be required to present proof of service at their chosen Everyone Active centre.

They will also need to fill in the necessary health and safety forms and watch the online induction before being granted free access.
