Bolton Community Leisure Trust supports Sport England’s ‘This Girl Can’ campaign

Sport England officially launched the inspiring ‘This Girl Can’ campaign last night (12 Jan) with the premiere of a national television advertisement during Coronation Street, reaching millions of viewers.  The initiative aims to forge new positive social attitudes to and around women and girls playing sport and being physically active, breaking down a key barrier (fear of judgement) so that they feel more confident and comfortable exercising.

Bolton Community Leisure Trust is supporting the initiative to encourage women and girls to take part in activities at our Centres and spread the message that ‘thisgirlcan’.  The Trust has seven leisure facilities across Bolton offering a variety of activities, including women only gym and swim sessions at Bolton One, Zumba, Legs, Bums & Tums and high energy Les Mills group exercise classes.  Other activities available such as squash, badminton and aqua aerobics offer an alternative workout option to the gym.

If an introduction to a particular sport or activity is needed, then Bolton Community Leisure’s friendly gym instructors are on hand to provide advice and support.  To see all of Bolton Community Leisure’s facilities and opportunities, visit www.boltonleisure.com.   

Dave Singleton, Chairman of Bolton Community Leisure Trust commented “Sport England’s growing insight, especially into younger women, shows that many of the barriers encountered are emotional as well as practical – how they feel about sport is as important as finding a convenient, affordable option.  We are hopeful that the campaign will inspire women and girls within our local community and liberate them from fear of judgement to join us in our centres and get involved.”

There is a huge social media drive behind the Sport England campaign using the hashtag #ThisGirlCan to get women talking and sharing their thoughts and experiences.

Join us at Facebook at GymInBolton or on Twitter @gyminBolton where we will be supporting this inspiring campaign and showing you how to get involved at your local leisure centre. 

Changes to free swimming for 60 – 64 year olds & free leisure activities for 65+ years

Customers will be aware that Bolton Council must make budget savings of £43.4million over the period 2013 – 2015. As a result it is not in a position to continue to fund the current range of free activities.  The Council has committed to maintain free swimming for the 17year olds and under and a full range of activities for 65 year olds and older, however, free swimming for 60 to 64 year olds will no longer be available from Monday, September 9th 2013 at Bolton Community Leisure Centres.

A charge will be payable from this date for these customers using the pool. This includes all instructor led aqua based sessions which will be subject to fees and charges.

These changes will be implemented across Bolton Community Leisure Centres from Monday 9th September. 

Further changes outlined will mean that free leisure activities for those aged 65+ years, will only be available during off-peak hours from Monday 4th November at Bolton Community Leisure Centres. 

A peak charge will be applicable before 9.30am Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) for all leisure activities across the centres.

Bolton Community Leisure Trust and Bolton Council are working closely to support this transition period and ensure that continued opportunities are available for customers through investment in new and improved facilities and activities.

The leisure centres affected by this policy change which are managed by Bolton Community Leisure Trust are:

• The Jason Kenny Centre at Bolton One
• Horwich Leisure Centre
• Farnworth Leisure Centre
• Westhoughton Community Leisure Centre
• Leverhulme Park Community Leisure Centre
• Sharples Community Leisure Centre
• Harper Green Community Leisure Centre

Bolton Community Leisure Trust is committed to providing excellent customer service and community leisure facilities. For further support on this issue please speak to a member of the team.
