Festivals celebrate new lease of life for Uttlesford leisure centres

09:51 05 June 2014




Three leisure centres in Uttlesford will host an all-day health and fitness festival on Saturday (June 7).

The 1Life festival at Lord Butler in Saffron Walden, Mountfitchet Romeera in Stansted and Great Dunmow leisure centres will be free to attend for those with a 1Life card and there will have a variety of fun activities on offer for all ages.

The festival will start at 9am and finish at 6pm, and people will be able to enjoy free gym access all day.

Visitors will be able to enjoy free gym access at all centres as well as a water polo taster at Lord Butler, a trampolining session at Great Dunmow and Zorb Football at Mountfitchet Romeera, amongst other fun activities.

Phil Wallis, contract manager at the centres, said: “We’re really looking forward to inviting our members, and those who have never visited the centres, to come along and celebrate a healthier way of living with us at the 1Life Festival.

“We’ve got lots of activities available for the community to take part in, and maybe even try something they’ve never done before; don’t worry if you haven’t got a 1Life card, you can sign up on the day and it’s absolutely free!”

1Life is committed to engage with people and communities, to enhance lives through health and wellbeing, sport and activity, learning and the arts. To sign up for a 1Life card visit 1life.co.uk or visit one of the leisure centres.
