There was something for everyone when West Norfolk’s five main leisure outlets opened their doors for a free open day on Sunday.

Lynnsport, Downham Leisure Centre, St James Swimming Pool, Oasis Leisure Centre and the Lynn Corn Exchange were all celebrating the recent launch of the Alive Leisure scheme.

The five centres welcomed visitors in their droves for a number of interactive hands-on experiences for West Norfolk people.

Alive Leisure Marketing executive Maddie Cox said: “The day went really well.

“We haven’t had the figures back yet but there was a good opportunity for people to try something they normally wouldn’t.

“This is the second year we’ve done it and the feedback we have had from customers has all been very positive.”

On offer at Alive Lynnsport was the climbing wall, junior gymnastics, kickboxing, archery, squash, taekwondo.

A number of Alive classes were on offer with bodypump, bodycombat, bodyattack and bodybalance to name a few.

There were also taster sessions for indoor group cycling, buggy workout, TRX extreme and Alive outdoors.

Indoor group cycling, family swimming and roller skating, archery, short mat bowls and badminton were among the activities on offer at Alive Downham.

Alive St James Pool opened its doors for an indoor group cycling class and a family swimming session, as well as adult beginner lessons.

Zumba, supple and relaxtion classes, indoor bowls, family swimming and squash fitness taster sessions were on offer down the road at Alive Oasis, not forgetting the funcastle for kids, which many children enjoyed.

At the Corn Exchange, visitors could try their hand at selling a ticket, focusing the lights and having a go on the mixer desk.

To round off an action-packed day of events and activities there was also face painting for youngsters at Lynnsport.

Organisers will be hoping that the final figures will top last year’s attendance of 2,500 people.
