RESIDENTS are being invited to take advantage of an exciting day of free activities at one of four leisure centres in the area.

This Saturday, September 30, residents across the district are invited to get ‘sportaneous’ and take advantage of an exciting day of free activities.

The Big Event day will be across Fusion’s four leisure centres in the area, Braintree Sport and Health, Braintree Swimming and Fitness, Halstead Leisure Centre and Witham Leisure Centre.

There will be free classes, swim and gym sessions, soft play, and spin and gym challenges. 

There is also cake stalls, raffles, face painting, free coffees and also pizza on offer at some of the sites.

Headlining the line-up of events at Braintree Sport and Health will be the chance to try out circus skills at the Phina Dance and Circus. 

This circus troupe is offering free entertainment and 'have a go' sessions and will be hosting its grand opening show on Friday, September 29.

It will also be at Braintree Sport and Health’s Big Event on September 30, with 30-minute performances scheduled at 11am, 12pm and 1pm.

Each centre will also be raising money for chosen charities.

Fusion CEO Anthony Cawley said: “As a charity, our Big Event open days mark an important moment in the Fusion calendar, when our teams can meet and greet the community, offer their support and expertise, and showcasing the wide range of activities on offer. 

“We hope the Big Event might inspire people to take up a new sport or activity and most of all, to enjoy the day with their friends and family.”
