CHILDREN dived into a swimming pool full of water dyed pink to launch a free swimming project.
They were at Dewsbury Sports Centre to mark the opening of swim4free.
Swimmers young and old were watched by former Channel swimmer Eileen Fenton, of Dewsbury.
The project allows free swimming lessons at more than 50 pools in West Yorkshire.
The lessons will be available for young people aged 16 and under and adults aged 60 and over.
Swim4free aims to get them into swimming.
Bradford, Kirklees, Calderdale, Leeds and Wakefield councils have all funded the project to support the Government’s contribution to a free swimming programme which is aiming to get at least 2 million people active before 2012.
Swim4free supports the national Change4life initiative which aims to prevent people from getting overweight by encouraging them to eat healthily and exercise more.
