CASCADES Leisure Centre in Tewkesbury will once again open its doors on Christmas Day and Boxing Day mornings .

The centre will open from 9am to 12noon on both mornings so members of the public can enjoy a festive swim or relax in the large Jacuzzi, or sauna and steam room.

Last year, more than 400 people attended over the two days and as this will be the last Christmas that Cascades is open, the team is expecting high visitor numbers.

On Christmas Day, visitors can also make the most of half price coffees and free mince pies, chocolates and biscuits.

The new leisure centre in Tewkesbury, which is currently being built just off Gloucester Road, is set to open in June 2016.

Tewkesbury Borough Council’s Lead Member for Health and Wellbeing Cllr Ron Allen said: “We are really pleased to be able to open our centre on Christmas and Boxing day mornings as it offers our customers something a little different to do while being able to keep fit and healthy. This year will be particularly poignant as of course this will be the last time that the leisure centre will open for Christmas, as we make way for the exciting new leisure centre opening in June.”
