ARMED FORCES MEMBERS – CATEGORY L
Serving members of the Armed Forces (Category L) receive free use of leisure activities included within the Options scheme after the initial and annual £5 registration fee.
CARERS – CATEGORY J
Where a customer requires a carer to accompany them when using our facilities, access to that carer will be free of charge to open activities, regardless of whether the carer is spectating or using the facilities themselves. Note that restrictions may apply for bookable activities where there are limited spaces, e.g. group fitness classes.
Where the carer wishes to use the facilities in their own time, then the normal 40% discount will apply.
HOW TO APPLY
Fill in an Everybody Options application form (PDF, 56KB) available at all Cheshire East Council leisure centres. Complete the form and take it to one of the leisure centres on your next visit to get your discount straight away.
The cost of the card is £5.00 per year and you must supply proof of your eligibility as detailed on the form to join the scheme.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer online joining or renewals at this time, but it is something we hope to introduce in the near future.
