Splash and run during our big sporting weekend
Swimmers and water babies, joggers and runners can make a big sporting impression during a weekend in March as we are set to stage two massive sporting events.

- 5.00pm - 6.30pm - Fun Zone – Aimed at children - mates, balls, play equipment, games and a finale pool disco, with lights and lasers.
The whole day is free of charge and classes and activities are based upon a first come first served basis.
In addition to this the centre has also been offering a number of exciting Big Splash activities over the past few months including:
- Junior Aqua Fit
- Crash Course swimming lessons
- Family fun
- £1 to swim at weekends
- Special memberships to adults who enrol on the adult swimming lessons programme
Cabinet Member for Social Inclusion, Councillor Ann Syrett said, “Swimming is one of the best ways to keep fit and stay healthy and this is a great chance for people to enjoy the water whilst having fun with their family and friends. So what are you waiting for, why not feel the gain without any pain and jump in to make a big splash!”

In addition to this, on Sunday 25th March 2012 we are also staging a Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile at Shirebrook. Setting off from behind Sports Direct the Mile will pass through/ take in the sights of the former Shirebrook Pit Trails and is set to be an incredible event.
Entrants don’t have to be sporty to take part, but can choose to complete 1, 3 or 6 miles knowing that all the money raised will help to change the lives of people living unimaginably tough lives right here on our doorstep, across the rest of the UK and in some the world’s poorest countries.
Councillor Ann Syrett continued, “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Shirebrook is here and it’s your time to shine. From teeny-tots with their mums and dads, to super sprinters up against the clock there’s something for everyone on the big day. This is the first Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Shirebrook and it is set to be a great event. So come on, pull your Sport Relief socks up, enter the Mile and do something amazing!”
