Free day at sports centre makes a big splash

Families enjoyed a day of FREE swimming, keep fit and play for for one day during half term at Filton Sports and Leisure Centre.

Families enjoyed a day of FREE swimming, keep fit and play for for one day during half term at Filton Sports and Leisure Centre.
Centre staff wanted to showcase all the opportunities on offer for local people.
Besides the sporting activities, there were displays by WW (formerly Weight Watchers), Zumba with Julie Hill and the South Glos Active in Life programme.
Our local police beat team marked bikes for free as part of the crime prevention strategy and the community garden team was also present. Families were queuing from early and the centre was busy all day.
Manager Scott Fessey said: “The open day was a great success with over 500 visitors joining us throughout the day.
"We really enjoyed the day and have had lots of really nice feedback. We look forward to planning our next one.”

Emily Bayley Came to swim at 2pm but pool was full. Lovely idea though.
Becky Price My daughter tried synchro and fit to fin. She thoroughly enjoyed both. I've never seen the centre so busy, including the park. Great fun day
Saiqa Akber Me and my kids enjoyed the swimming and the play indoors.
Penny Holley Thoroughly enjoyed both Zumba sessions. But realise I need to try to get fitter!
Jodie Collins It’s a really good idea for the holidays. We enjoyed the 9am swim session.
Amy S Muir I was a little disappointed as I went up to get my daughter's bike engraved by the police who were meant to be there till 4pm. We went up around 2pm and they were nowhere to be seen. It was nice to see the park busy and it was lovely weather.
