Paralympian Ellie Simmonds at the official Splashpoint Leisure Centre opening hosts a couple of Q&A sessions with an invited audience of local people. A young girl with the same condition as Ellie will be in the audience. Members of the public are invited to put their names forward to ask Ellie a question.
The official opening is at 9.00 am on Thursday June 20th 2013 when Ellie starts with a walkabout in the piazza in front of the main entrance before going inside for the main event. Ellie will then chat with dignitaries before unveiling a plaque – later to be installed outside on the paved piazza floor.
After the unveiling Ellie starts a synchronised swimming display in the main pool. Ellie then tours the facility including the unique and eco-friendly plant room. Finally the Q&A answers follow.
To come along and ask Ellie a question e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your e-mail address and daytime contact number and the first names drawn out a hat will get included. Numbers are limited for each Q&A session.
