COLERAINE Borough Council is going back in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the town’s Leisure Centre.

At the start of September for one weekend only prices will roll back to what they were in 1983!

This means and adult and child could get a swim for a combined total of 60 pence compared to today’s price of £6.

This offer was revealed by council officer Alex Carmichael at Tuesday’s council meeting along with the new leisure charges.

“The proposed charges have been developed in the context of the current economic climate i.e. increasing costs to Council to provide leisure services, primarily utility fees, maintenance and repair of ageing facilities and the real ongoing reduction in public spending,” said Mr Carmichael.

“However, the proposed charges also reflect the social responsibility that this Council has to meet the needs and influence the lifestyle and wellbeing of our citizens.”

Mr Carmichael went on to say: “Whilst it is evident that fees and charges now need to be consistently applied, for the centres to operate effectively the management need a degree of flexibility to be proactive with promotions and offers in order to retain and grow the business where possible.”

One of these promotions is the Price Roll back for the 30th anniversary.
