Plenty on for the kids at the local leisure centre

Take advantage of the 25 metre swimming pool and take the kids for a swim. For able swimmers you can try out water polo, synchronised swimming and diving. For those learning to swim there are lessons available in the teaching pool and they are also available on a one to one basis (as well as being available for adults too).

At 9am there is a beach splash session for the under 5s – just turn up and have fun.

Kung Fu

If your child (or you) fancies themselves as a martial arts master then they can try out Kung Fu and kickboxing run at the leisure centre on Saturdays at 1.00pm. Martial arts are an excellent way for the children to keep fit and healthy while at the same time learning discipline and respect. Ask for a trial session to see if they like it.


If you are stuck for yet another inventive idea for your child’s birthday party then leave it to the staff of the leisure centre to organise a day to remember. There are three different packages to choose from depending on the age of the children and they either involve bouncy castle pay for the little ones or swimming pool fun and games for the olders ones. All parties are self catered so you need to bring your own food, but the kids will have plenty to keep them entertained, and the best bit is, you get to leave the mess behind.

Mum Time

For mums who want to use the facilities there is a creche available on Mondays – Fridays with hours that are designed to fit in with many of the timetabled classes. So you have no excuse not to fit in some “me time”, drop the kids off and take advantage of the gym, the swimming pool or one of the many classes on offer including Zumba, Aerobics, Pilates and Spinning.
