A popular figure at The Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham is hanging up her swimming costume and lycra shorts.
Sue Harris, swimschool principal and keep-fit instructor, is resigning after more than 20 years with the leisure centre.
She was there as the centre moved from Union Street to Trent Road and has taken on many roles. Most recently, she helped to launch a facility for vulnerable adults after day centres in the county closed.
Her commitment even saw her being crowned Local Hero 2012 in the Journal’s Grantham is Great Awards. In a letter this week, a reader wrote: “Sue is AMAZING!”
Sue said she is ready to leave the leisure centre behind but that she would miss the people she has met along the way.
She said: “I feel really sad because I’ve made a lot of friends. But I’ve had enough now.”
