Super Sonic 70s Show – Postponed

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Super Sonic 70s Show this Saturday 8th November at The Civic Theatre has been cancelled. This is due to a complication in recovery from surgery from one of the band members. The show will be rescheduled earlier in the new year and any tickets purchased will be valid for the rescheduled show. The group worked hard to find a replacement for this show but after much effort were unable to get in someone to play bass, which is an integral part of the show. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

RLSS National Pool Lifeguard Qualification Training Course

The course will run at Hyndburn Leisure Centre for six days from the 16th until the 21st of February 2015.

This course will provide the learner an internationally recognised Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) Pool Lifeguard qualification enabling to apply for employment in the leisure industry.

 It is the accepted qualification at many pools to work as a qualified lifeguard. Being a lifeguard offers a fantastic foundation to a career in the leisure industry. Many individuals start work as a lifeguard and progress their career into other areas of the leisure centre environment (e.g. gym instructor / personal trainer, swimming instructor, sports coach) or by becoming a supervisor or duty manager, with many progressing even further onto general manager and above. This demonstrates that the NPLQ is not just a qualification it is also a stepping stone into employment opening up many opportunities and career paths.

 Please see our application form for a list of pre requisites of swimming ability.

For any other questions regarding this course please or call 01254 385945 and speak to reception.

Gym Tots

Please be aware that there is no Gym Tots at Hyndburn Leisure Centre during half term. Gym Tots will be back as normal week beginning 3rd November.
