On the 8th of March Gurnell Leisure Centre will be inviting all women for a free swim throughout the day. All members and local residents are also invited to judge Gurnell leisure Centre’s male and female staff’s best efforts at cake baking in exchange for referring a friend.

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

We are encouraging women to get more active and celebrating the efforts of female and male efforts alike by sharing some baked goods.

Carly Oatway, Community Health & Fitness Service Manager at Gurnell Leisure Centre, comments, ‘At Gurnell Leisure Centre we care about the health of our members and local residents, and especially our women. We hope the women of our community enjoy a free swim and that all enjoy a piece of cake’.
