Purley Swimming Pool in Croydon has abandoned the age-old swimming pool rule of “No heavy petting” in favour of a “Kiss and Swim” scheme for this weekend only.
The swimming pool is offering a free swim to anyone who gives someone they love a kiss, on Saturday the 13th and Sunday the 14th of February.
Duty manager Danny Plumber said: “Just come in with someone you love, give them a quick kiss – and you can swim for free.”
Residents of Croydon are in full support of this idea. Kirsty Taylor, 21, said: “It’s a good thing, but I’d feel sorry for the receptionist! And what happens if you’re single?”
Singletons need not be concerned: you can kiss a lover, a member of your family or even just a friend.
