Deputy Leader of West Lindsey District Council, Cllr Lesley Rollings said: “50 years is remarkable and we are very proud it’s served our community for so long and it will continue to do so for many more years to come. We hope people get down to West Lindsey Leisure Centre this weekend and enjoy themselves, whatever they choose to do.”

Kerry O’Neill, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “It is fantastic that the swimming pool at West Lindsey Leisure Centre has served the local community for 50 years and we are really looking forward to celebrating this landmark.

“We hope people of all ages and interests will come down and see what the centre has to offer and get involved in the activity programme at our Family Open Weekend. There is something here for everyone.”
