Ev­ery­one Ac­tive of­fer free cen­tre use for emer­gency ser­vices

The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

This Christ­mas, Ev­ery­one Ac­tive will open the doors to its leisure cen­tres for free to all mem­bers of the emer­gency ser­vices and front­line NHS col­leagues un­til New Year’s Eve.

The good­will ges­ture is in recog­ni­tion of the hard work the emer­gency ser­vices carry out, par­tic­u­larly over the Christ­mas pe­riod, when they are work­ing long and unso­cia­ble hours away from loved ones.

Those who hold a valid Emer­gency Ser­vices ID card will be granted free-of-charge ac­cess to the gyms and swim­ming pools across at Whitby and Pin­dar Leisure Cen­tres as well as Scar­bor­ough Sports Vil­lage.

“Christ­mas is a spe­cial time of year, but many emer­gency ser­vice work­ers put in ex­tra shifts and in­cred­i­bly long hours to keep us safe and well.

“With our cen­tres open early to late, we wanted to do some­thing to show our ap­pre­ci­a­tion. Whether they want to stop by for a hot shower, a swim in the pool or to let off some steam in the gym, we will wel­come them through our doors,” said Paul Dowl­ing, East Re­gional Di­rec­tor for Ev­ery­one Ac­tive.

All emer­gency ser­vices staff will be re­quired to fill in the nec­es­sary Health & Safety forms and watch the on­line in­duc­tion be­fore be­ing granted free and un­lim­ited ac­cess to the cen­tres over the fes­tive pe­riod.
