It was just another day for Amara and her son Aihan as they walked through the doors at Blacktown Leisure Centre Stanhope on Thursday 18 March.
For 3-year old Aihan in particular, he was as excited as ever to get to his Little Kickers class. For Amara things were about to get much more exciting!
There waiting in reception was Council’s Manager Key Venues, Kevin Jones, ready to greet the centre’s 15 millionth visitor. And it was Amara!
As the 15 millionth visitor, Amara was congratulated with flowers, a merchandise pack, a free gym membership for her and her husband and a complimentary term of swim lessons for Aihan.
Blacktown City Mayor, Councillor Tony Bleasdale OAM said; “It’s great to see Blacktown Leisure Centre Stanhope reach yet another remarkable milestone.
