Fitness and fun for all the family in Oxfordshire

A weekend of family fun is being organised at Carterton Leisure Centre to celebrate its third anniversary since opening.

There will be taster sessions and special offers on Saturday, December 2, and Sunday, December 3, to give people the chance to try out what is available at the centre, in Broadshires Way.

Staff at the centre, which is managed by Wycombe Leisure Ltd on behalf of the District Council, have organised the Family Fun Days to mark its third birthday and will be wearing fancy dress. Activities and offers include:

* Children swim for 1 and Adults for 1.50 in any session (normal pool timetables will vary this weekend)
* Socatots taster sessions for young children
* Mini gymnastics taster sessions
* Aerobics classes
* Half price gym inductions

There will also be face painting, a cake stall and the chance for children to meet the centre's mascot, Chippy the Chimp. There will be discounted admission to taster sessions and classes organised as part of the Family Fun Days, and money raised will go to Children in Need.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: "We hope as many people as possible will come along to Carterton Leisure Centre and take part in the Family Fun Days. It's a great opportunity to try out all the facilities that are available and find out how to keep healthy and fit in a welcoming environment."

Carterton Leisure Centre opened in November 2003. It has a 6-lane, 25m pool and learner pool, aerobics studio and large Mill Health and Fitness Studio, suitable for people of all abilities.
