Love your pool with 2 for 1 offer this Valentine’s weekend!
Friary Grange Leisure Centre is encouraging everyone to fall back in love with their local swimming pool this February.
Following the £500,000 makeover of its changing rooms and front entrance, Friary Grange Leisure Centre is launching a ‘Love Your Pool’ campaign to highlight how much its 25-metre swimming pool has to offer.
To start the ball rolling, the Lichfield leisure centre is offering a discount on swimming. It will run from Friday 14 February to Sunday 16 February, and will allow two people into the pool for the price of one at public swimming sessions.
Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Parks, said: “We’re keen to showcase the recent improvements to Friary Grange Leisure Centre and to get even more people swimming. This is why we’re launching the ‘Love Your Pool’ campaign, which encourages people to rediscover what the swimming pool timetable has to offer. So, whether you’re coming to the pool to have fun with friends, are learning to swim, or want to keep fit, we have a session for you.”

The 2 for 1 on public swims is available at the below times:
- Friday 14 February 2014: 6pm to 9pm
- Saturday 15 February 2014: 11am to 1.30pm
- Sunday 16 February 2014: 8am to 1.30pm
