CHURCH Stretton Leisure Centre is throwing open its doors for a free open day to showcase a new pool inflatable and the wide range of activities on offer.

Held from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, February 24, there will be taster sessions, family activities and membership incentives for people who sign up. 

However, the main attraction is the new pool inflatable, which has been purchased with funds raised by Stretton Pool Action, supporters of Church Stretton swimming pool.

Robert Macey, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for culture and digital, said: “On behalf of Shropshire Council and the leisure centre team I would like to thank Stretton Pool Action for their continued support, and this generous donation of the new swimming pool inflatables which will be enjoyed by many in the community for years to come.

“The open day is an opportunity for people to take a look and see how they can help improve their health by taking up even just one of the many activities available at Church Stretton.”
