LEISURE bosses are on the money - by rolling back prices to 20p to celebrate two decades of a Greenock sports facility.

Staff at the Waterfront Leisure Centre are marking the 20th anniversary since the complex was officially opened with a special 'thank-you' to customers.

Visitors to the centre tomorrow can enjoy a swim, ice skating, entry to the fitness gym and health suite for just 20p in recognition of the milestone.

It is also the same price for a medium coffee at the Waterfront's Costa cafe when purchased along with a cake or pastry.

Stuart Boyle, operations manager for centre operators Inverclyde Leisure, said: "This is to thank all our loyal customers and encourage people to come out and enjoy the many things the Waterfront has to offer.

"It's especially good for families.

"For example, it's only 20p for an adult swim and children get in for free so a family of four can go swimming for 40p."

The centre actually opened its doors to the public in September 1997 but the official opening took place in April 1998.

Provost at the time, Cathie Allan, did the honours with leader of the council Harry Mulholland also in attendance.

Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, would later cut the ribbon at the Waterfront's gym.

The plaque commemorating the occasion is still on display in the fitness centre.

The leisure complex now welcomes in excess of 500,000 people through its doors every year and continues to go from strength to strength.

Stuart said: "The unique thing about the Waterfront is that we have everything under one roof and various activities, from figure skating to swimming lessons.

"That sets us apart from other leisure facilities.

"We're all delighted to be celebrating 20 years of the Waterfront with our customers."
