Making a Splash at Pool Open Day


Families got into the swim at an open day to promote the variety of leisure and fitness activities on offer in Crewe.

Crewe Swimming Pool threw open its doors to encourage children and adults to try out its facilities – for free.

Visitors took part in family pool sessions and tried out taster classes with the Crewe Neptune Life Saving Club, Crewe Flyers Swimming Club and Icicle Divers Club.

Meanwhile, rollerblading sessions, balance board classes and rowing and cycling contests in the fitness suite meant there was plenty to occupy those who preferred to keep their feet on dry land.

There was also the opportunity to learn basic life support with sessions from the Save a Baby/Community Life Support campaign.

Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “In Cheshire East we are committed to supporting people of all ages and abilities to become more active.

“The open day was an excellent way of introducing families in Crewe to the wide variety of leisure and fitness activities that are available on their doorstep.

“The turnout was excellent and I would like to thank all those who helped to make it such a success.”

A tombola and refreshments stall staffed by volunteers raised more than £90 for Macmillan Nurses.
