We hope all our Active Card holders are having a good 2014.  Here's a quick update about activities happening at your local Active Leisure Centre and Library.

This year I will read more…

This year I will get in shape…
If ‘not having enough time in the day’ is one of your reasons to not squeeze in that bit of exercise why not watch how mum of 2 Hannah juggles her life to fit that workout in. Like and Share her story on our Facebook page for your chance to WIN a 1 year free Gym, Swim and Fitness Class Membership!

Feeling the pinch after Christmas?
Chef Jamie Oliver has donated copies of his new cook book 'Save with Jamie' to libraries, click here to reserve a copy and discover new ways to shop smart, cook clever, eat well and waste less.  Jamie says "everyone can learn basic skills helping improve everyday lives. Reading and cooking are two of those skills for sure.”
