South Norfolk Council is providing space for families at Wymondham Leisure Centre to enjoy some family time in the warm and take part in some fun activities during free drop-in sessions.

Food and drink will be available with a sandwich and a drink costing just £1.50. The offer is for families and a parent or responsible adult will need to be present.

South Norfolk Cabinet member Alison Thomas said: “We know that the cost of living crisis is making things difficult for some of our residents. Our Help Hub is doing wonderful work to support people in need but this situation requires a whole Council response and so we are providing even more support through our leisure centres. If you or someone you know is struggling, give us a call and we will do all we can to help.”

The Council will also be helping by offering free showers in its three leisure centres. Residents will be able to have a hot shower and if needed hair and body wash will also be made available.

A food swap scheme is also being introduced and baskets will be placed in the centres for people to drop off any extra non-perishable food and this food will then be available for those who need it. Pet food will also be included.

The Coffee with Flo Café is also part of the Too Good to Go scheme. People can download the app and buy any surplus food from the café at reduced prices.

The drop in sessions will run at Wymondham Leisure Centre until 30 April 2023, Wednesday- Friday from 4:00-5:00pm

Activities may include Arts and Crafts, Short Tennis, Badminton, Basketball etc. Suitable child age ranges are 5-16 years and appropriate footwear must be worn.
