AIMING HIGHER, FIRE-FIGHTING AND MORE IN THIS DOUBLE EDITION. It doesn’t seem two minutes since Winter released its grip and Summer is just around the corner (not sure where Spring has gone!) and we’re excited because with the hopes of sunshine and a return to the great outdoors, we’re welcoming a new member to the Pendle Leisure Trust family, in the form of our new outdoor aerial assault course currently under construction at Pendle Leisure Centre!

In addition to that, we’ve been raising money like mad for different charities across the borough, including Red Nose Day and the Fire-fighters Charity.

A total of £750 was raised by staff at Pendle Leisure Trust and local fire-fighters from a challenge held at Seedhill Athletics and Fitness Centre.

The people of Pendle were invited to put their strength and stamina to the test and try and beat local fire-fighters at their own game. Individuals and teams of four took part in a number of activities, including a bleep test; carrying a rolled length of hose for 800m as fast as they can; barrel and equipment shuttle runs in full fire kit as fast as they can; running with a hose in full fire kit and pulling a 50kg dummy over 50m. So all together we’ve had a busy April, and we’re gearing up for a great Summer! The Pendle Leisure Trust Team

CONSTRUCTION IS UNDERWAY ON AN EXCITING NEW DEVELOPMENT AT PENDLE LEISURE CENTRE This Summer the only way is up with our great new outdoor activity and high-ropes course, which will be built on the site of the former astro-turf pitch at Pendle Leisure Centre in Colne. With this way to enjoy outdoor activites and a great way to motivate teams and groups, our new outdoor activites and high-ropes course promises to be a welcome addition to the Colne skyline.
Featuring a zip-wire, climbing wall, high and low rope courses and more, all built around a main activity tower, the development hopes to bring new jobs to the area, as well as great opportunities to discover a new way to spend your leisure time. Visitors to the course will have to move from station to station using a series of aerial ropes and ‘stepping stones’ with qualified instructors assisting them through the ‘journey’. The rope course is expected to open this Summer, more info can be found on pendleleisuretrust.co.uk/highropes

WEST CRAVEN’S SHINY NEW UPGRADE IS NOW COMPLETE... West Craven Sports Centre re-opened with some new and up-graded facilities. At the end of December 2012, the pool area at Pendle Wavelengths was closed for some major changes, as a result of a scrutiny review which high-lighted much-needed up-grades at some of our centres. As part of a ‘phased programme’ of refurbishment, West Craven Sports Centre is the second of our centres to close and re-open with some upgraded and shiny new features, including new changing rooms, showers, and lockers. The centre enjoyed a great re-opening in time for this year’s Pendle Triathlon.

RED NOSE DAY ANTICS AT WAVELENGTHS Last month was Red Nose Day and two brave staff members at Pendle Wavelengths put themselves at the mercy of staff and therapists. Anthony Slater (fitness instructor) and Martin Trickett (leisure attendant) agreed to suffer for the amusement of onlookers by having their chests waxed by our Inside Spa therapists, raising money for Comic Relief in the process. Well done to all involved and well done for all monies raised! You don’t need an excuse such as Red Nose Day to book yourself into Inside Spa. To see more of their treatments including waxing and tinting, visit insidespa.co.uk
WEST CRAVEN SWIMATHON, PEOPLE OF PENDLE TAKE THE PLUNGE! STAFF AT WEST CRAVEN SPORTS CENTRE ARE ENCOURAGING PEOPLE IN PENDLE TO TAKE THE PLUNGE AND GET INVOLVED IN THIS YEAR’S NATIONAL SWIMATHON.
All ages and abilities are invited to join in the event at the Barnoldswick pool between 3pm and 5.30pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April, by taking part in a choice of challenges. West Carven Sports Centre is one of 615 pools across the UK taking part in Swimathon 2013 to raise vital funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. For those who would prefer to cheer on from the sidelines, they can still do their bit by sponsoring a swimmer or volunteering to be a lapcounter. Samantha Lamb, from West Craven Sports Centre, said: “Swimathon 2013 is a perfect way to keep fit, have fun and raise money for a fantastic cause all at the same time.” Marie Curie Cancer Care gives people with terminal illnesses the choice to die at home. Funds raised through Swimathon 2013 will help Marie Curie nurses provide them and their families with free hands-on care and emotional support, in their own homes, right until the end.
