Residents in North East Derbyshire are being offered a 50% discount on monthly membership at leisure centres in Dronfield, Eckington and
It comes as NE Derbyshire Council celebrate the success of their 'Just do more' weekend which saw hundreds of people experiencing a range of family activities from trampoling to table tennis at the leisure centres.
Budding Beckhams picked up top tips in what was the first of a new round of training sessions with Chesterfield Football Club - now being held every Saturday in Dronfield and Clay Cross.
Visitors had the chance to meet England and Great Britain swimmer, Ross Davenport, who won two gold medals in the 2006 Commonwealth Games, as part of the packed programme of activities.
Cllr Graham Baxter MBE, Council Leader, said: "We want to encourage people across North East Derbyshire to be more active and healthy and the message behind our new-look leisure scheme is simple - 'just do more!' "
"We welcomed residents of all ages and abilities to our centres over the weekend - it was great to see people trying something new, and finding out how they could be more active with their families.
"We hope to see them back soon!"
The new 'Just do More!' scheme, which replaces the council's existing Activo scheme, is available at the half price monthly discount to people signing up by 5th November.
