Nearly 700 people flocked to Long Stratton Leisure Centre’s open day on Monday 8 August.

Visitors enjoyed tours of the South Norfolk Council owned centre and over 200 children had fun trying out Bananas Soft Play for free. Staff handed out 80 goodie bags packed full of treats and offers, as well as free day passes, while Crafty Kids offered free arts and crafts workshops to children.

South Norfolk Council’s Portfolio Holder for Customer Focus, Cllr Richard Elliott, said:

“It was brilliant to see so many people enjoying the leisure centre. It’s an absolutely fantastic facility, and the day was all about letting people know just how much it has to offer. With a wide range of classes, a state-of-the art gym and a wonderful play facility for children, it really is worth shouting about.”

The leisure centre’s café is also now stocking food from local bakery Katherine’s Kitchen. The mum and daughter team offered a free selection of their delicious homemade food, including some of their fabulous cakes and sausage rolls.

Cllr Richard Elliott added:

“Where possible we always support local businesses and we are delighted to be stocking the incredible food from this wonderful bakery from just down the road in Great Moulton. Every day there will be a fresh supply of paninis, toasties, baguettes, cakes, sandwiches and so much more, so even if you’re not planning to get sweaty in the gym, you can enjoy a delicious lunch or homemade treat.”

The Council is currently offering a special six week membership for just £45, which includes access to all of their leisure centres and gyms, over 150 classes, access to Imagine Spa at Wymondham Leisure Centre and Your Home Workout. Or residents can join Framingham Earl Sports Centre for six weeks for the bargain price of £30.
