The singer and songwriter took part in a question and answer session before meeting and greeting her fans on site. She took part in gym challenges before drawing the raffle for one lucky Crawley resident.

“It was really nice to meet everybody that came down to K2 Crawley,” East said. “I want to thank everyone for coming and hope they all had a great day.”

Over 7,000 people came through the doors at the K2 Crawley to experience the fantastic facilities on offer including swimming and diving lessons, soft play, badminton and fencing.

European Champion Eden Cheng helped coach children in the diving lessons before showcasing her world leading skills from the 5m board.

“Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I can be inspirational to others,” Cheng said. “Thank you to the students, parents and staff for making me feel so welcome.”

Darryl Keech, Everyone Active contract manager, said: “It was a fantastic event and I was pleased to see so many people come to the K2 Crawley on Saturday.

“Fleur [East] and Eden [Cheng] were great and it was great to see so many of their fans come to see them.

“I hope that the local community enjoyed using the facilities and found a new activity they enjoy doing.”

K2 Crawley to stay open ‘until the government advises otherwise’

While the news has been a constant stream of closures some residents will find it comforting to know that K2 Crawley and the Bewbush Centre, both run by Everyone Active, are to remain open as long as possible.

But certain measures are being taken to minimise any spread. These include:

  • Reducing group exercise classes to 50% capacity to allow social distancing.
  • Classes to finish 10-15 minutes earlier to allow for thorough cleaning of equipment.
  • Staff to make regular health, safety and cleanliness checks.
  • Increase supply of anti-bacterial soap, hand and surface anti-bacterial spray and paper towels.

Stuart Mills, Area Contract Manager at Everyone Active, said:

“At present, our Everyone Active centres in Crawley remain open until the government advises otherwise.

“Certain changes are being implemented including reducing our group exercise classes to 50% capacity in line with Public Health England guidance regarding social distancing. Classes will also finish 10-15 minutes earlier than usual to allow for thorough cleaning of equipment between sessions.

“Colleagues are also carrying out regular health, safety and cleanliness checks and are ensuring all touch-point surfaces are cleaned regularly. We are also increasing our supply of anti-bacterial soap, hand and surface anti-bacterial spray, and paper towels available within our gyms and are asking all customers to wipe down any equipment they have used.

“We would also like to assure our members that it is safe to continue swimming. Advice from PWTAG (Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group) shows that the water and chlorine within the swimming pools will help to kill the virus.

“As per the latest advice from Public Health England, if members are showing signs or symptoms of coronavirus, we would ask that they do not attend the centre. However, remaining healthy and active is important now more than ever. With this in mind, we are still encouraging our members to keep to their usual routine but remain extra vigilant with their cleanliness and keep up to date with the latest government advice on coronavirus.
