Glass Mill Open Day, July 20th

Fusion writes:

On Saturday 20 July, Lewisham Council and Fusion Lifestyle will be marking the start of the summer holidays with a day of free taster sessions and activities for all ages at Glass Mill Leisure Centre.

Throughout the day, young people will be able to take part in special gym induction sessions and sample classes including boxercise and bootcamp.

Meanwhile, adults can test their dance moves with Zumba, tone their tum with Ab Attack, experience a full body workout with Body Combat or take inspiration from the Tour de France with an RPM class. The gym will also be offering group sessions as well as rowing, sit-up and press-up challenges.

The brand new 10m climbing wall will also be open, with a series of taster sessions for adults and juniors, beginners and experts.

From midday onwards, Glass Mill’s two pools will be dedicated to swimming assessments and fun family swims. There will also be an underwater hockey demonstration from 4pm.

All sessions are free and are offered on a first come first served basis, subject to availability.

Less sporty members of the family will be kept entertained by face painting, special appearances by mascots, Olly the Octopus and Zoggy the Seal, and fantastic prize draws and competitions.

The award-winning Rhubarb & Custard CafĂ©, located in Glass Mill’s foyer, will be serving special hand-made picnic food which can be purchased and then enjoyed in the beautiful surroundings of the adjacent Cornmill Gardens.
