Olympic silver medalist Colin Jackson was previously confirmed to be attending Batchwood Sports Centre on the day.

Batchwood will host its open day from 9am until 6pm, with Colin Jackson available for pictures and autographs.

St Albans & Harpenden Review:

Steve Cox, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “We’re incredibly excited to invite the whole community down to Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre and Batchwood Golf Course & Sports Centre on Saturday, January 7.

“With the current cost of living crisis and January blues, it’s really important for us to give something back to the community.

"We thought what better way to do this than by hosting a day of free activities for everyone to enjoy. 

“We’re pulling out all the stops to make this an unmissable event, from hosting a wide range of activities all for free, to having sporting heroes such as Mark Foster and Colin Jackson come down to meet everyone and even take on some gym challenges for customers to try to beat – it’s set to be a fantastic day for all!”
