COUNCIL leisure centres will open for free next week to encourage more people to get fit and into shape.

Ferryhill, Newton Aycliffe, Shildon Sunnydale and Spennymoor Leisure centres, all run by Sedgefield Borough Council, will offer free fitness classes from next Monday to Friday, June 10.

There will be sessions for people of all ages and the free classes will include aqua aerobics, pilates, body toning, fitness for the over 50s and aerobics.

Anyone who takes part in one of the free fitness classes will be entitled to a half price session at a later date.

Those people who attend four fitness classes in June will get their fifth session free.

For details on times for classes, call the individual leisure centres.
