THERE was a chance for people living in and around Bishops Castle to support their local leisure centre.

SpArC users and local community members who have attended Kate Evans’ tile painting workshops over the last few weeks will see their work on display at the SpArC centre in Bishop’s Castle.

Trustees of the Save the SpArC charity held an open evening when the newly refurbished changing rooms were officially re-opened, and the art work unveiled.

Kate Evans, ceramic artist is the driving force behind the initiative.

The pool will re-open for swimmers from Wednesday, April 14 and additional public swimming sessions will be available between 4pm & 6pm Monday to Thursday, until the start of the Easter holidays.
