Over 50s across Bolsover District are showing age is no boundary to staying in shape and keeping fit and healthy as they have been taking part in the Councils 50+ Social Activity Hub.social hub
Held every Friday morning from 10am-12noon at Clowne Sports Centre participants can choose what activities they want to do and how much of the session they want to take part in. This can range from bowls to badminton and short tennis to shuffleboard.
Bolsover District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Mary Dooley said, “The response to these sessions has been great and everyone who attends has been really positive about them.
“We all know as we get older exercising and keeping active becomes harder but by just doing a little at a time and enjoying what you do in a social environment can go a long way.”
The Activity Hub is all about getting people out of their armchair, becoming more active, having fun and meeting new people – all within their own limits, fitness and agility.
The first session is free, and then it’s just £2 for each session thereafter. So come along and have a go, meet new people, have a chat and a drink. For further information on the sessions please call 01246 242363.

New leisure centre name revealed

We have revealed the new name for our improved new leisure facility at Clowne – Go! Active @The Arc.

The new facility is due to open in January 2017 and the overall brand highlights where the facility is (The Arc) and gives a message to people to ‘go...be active’.

The brand will be used to market the new facility as an all encompassing one that offers a wide range of health, wellbeing and physical activities for a variety of people to participate in and enjoy. Pictured is Councillor Dooley with the new Go! Active branding

Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Mary Dooley said, “We are having a brand new facility so we wanted it to have a brand new name that was all encompassing and attracted families to come and do fun activities together.”

The Go! encompassed in the circle also lends itself to a number of sub brands and other marketing campaigns, helping us to promote the various elements and functions within the new facility. The sub-brands have been created to use different colours and the word Go! encompassed in a circle. These include (but not limited to) Go! Swim, Go! Exercise, Go! Play, etc.

The brand and sub-brands are bright and vibrant and will be used across a wide range of communications and marketing campaigns to help promote the various activities and sessions that will be on offer.

Councillor Dooley added, “The way the branding has been done means it can be used to market the wide range of activities that will be on offer but still be very distinctive from other facilities in the area.

“Now we have the name it just adds to the excitement and the countdown to the facility opening next year and we also have plans to launch a very exciting and new membership scheme in the summer that will benefit families – so make sure you keep an eye out for that.”

Work is progressing well on the new facility and once completed will include:

  • 25m swimming pool and smaller teaching pool
  • Water slide
  • Sauna/steam room
  • 100 station gym 
  • Group exercise rooms and a spinning studio 
  • Sports hall
  • Food and beverage offer
  • Children’s ‘soft play’ zone
  • Outdoor pitches
  • Universal changing facilities

Compulsory Dog Microchipping - are you ready?

Dog owners across the District are being reminded that new legislation will come into force on 6 April 2016, meaning that their pet must be micro-chipped in addition to wearing a collar and tag.

We have done a lot of work over the past few years to educate people and get them prepared for this change in the law, so it is important that dog owners are ready. A dog being micrchipped

The new legislation will improve animal welfare by making it easier to return a stray dog to its owner and also will help to deter dog theft.

Owners will need to:

  • Have their dog micro-chipped and registered on one of the authorised commercial databases available;
  • Register the details of any new owner before they sell or give the dog away;
  • Keep their contact details up-to-date on the microchip databases.

The microchip, the size of a small piece of rice, is inserted in between the dog’s shoulder blades and coded with the owner’s details. Any owner who does not comply could face fines of up to £500.

We provide a microchipping service in addition to most veterinary practices and to arrange for your dog to be microchipped, please contact the Dog Warden on 01246 242424. For a limited period only, if your dog wears a collar and tag inscribed with the owners details, we are able to microchip your dog free (on a first come first served basis).
