WATCH out for pirates milling around the open air pool at Chesham Moor Gym and Swim next week, as the centre welcomes a new inflatable.

Jolly rogers will be at the ready amongst staff as they show off the pirate-themed inflatable, which young swimmers can climb up before sliding or jumping down again.

It will be floating around the pool from 4.30pm on Wednesday, May 7 and younsters have the chance to get the first stamp on a new pirate card scheme that's been launched.

Anyone collecting ten stamps before September 5 will be in with a chance of winning a junior season ticket for 2015.

Centre manager Danny Essex said: "We’re really looking forward to showing our visitors the new inflable. We’ve designed it to be fun and exciting, and it will really help the kids burn off some energy and get active over the summer months. The theme is great, and we can’t wait to dress up like pirates on the day."
