No, it’s not an opportunity to defeat Chelsea footballers, but a one day sport and leisure fest promoted by Active Hastings to combat winter lethargy that is open to all-comers. On Sunday 27th January Summerfields Leisure Centre will be opening its doors for what it calls “all day family
fun sports activities”.  For a fee of £1 per head, plus another £1 for access to the swimming pool, you will have the run of the centre for six hours
between 10 am and 4 pm. And no need to book in advance, just register from 9.30 am on the day.

Sports will include an open gym, junior netball and football. For the less sporting there will be ballet fit, salsa, and arts and crafts.

Andy Batsford, Hastings Borough Council’s lead councillor for leisure, enthuses: “I love the buzz at Summerfields on days like these; the place is
full of kids and families having fun and getting fit without even knowing it. This is perfect for the end of January blues. There is so much to choose
from – and at £1 per person, it’s affordable too”.
