Time for a dip
I have to admit it's been a while since we went to the Levenshulme Pool, but I've been galvanised into action (well, I will be on Saturday) by this email from Emma Herrero:
I went to the Levenshulme swimming pools on Monday to happily discover that finally they are investing in the building (after a hard campaign from the neighbours to avoid their final closure...)!!
After our swimming session , I spoke with the person in charge and she was proudly glad to inform us that they have managed to get some funding and things are getting done!
Also she told us about the variety of new work out classes (as below listed) and that the membership price has been dropped from £30 to...£18!! Furthermore you don't need to sign a contract or monthly direct debit...just to pay for the month you fancy going and that is all...how many times do we see something improved and getting cheaper!!
With those £18 you get access to the pools, gym and classes. Pass it on please...
Monday 7.30-9.30pm yoga
Tuesday 6.30-7.30pm circuit
Wednesday 8.00-9.00pm aqua
Thursday 6.30-7.30pm boxercise
Friday 6.30-7.30pm circuit
Update: since I posted this, the Swimming Baths featured in the South Manchester Reporter. I can't make a link to the online version, but it's fair to say that there's still some campaigning to be done to make sure that the £200,000 isn't just a drop in the ocean.
