Mischa's smart move rewarded

A recent visit to Heolddu Leisure Centre in Bargoed resulted in six-year-old Mischa Smith becoming the 50,000th person to sign up for a Caerphilly county borough council 'Smart Card'.

Mischa, from Tredegar, was the lucky recipient of the landmark 50,000th card and as a reward she was presented with a 12 month leisure centre membership for herself and her family.

The popular Smart Cards allow local people to access library and leisure centre services faster and more smoothly. Some of the benefits of having a Smart Card include access to hundreds of books, CDs and audio tapes, free computer use, Welsh language resources, author visits and music events at local libraries. The card also provides free swimming for children (during the school holidays) and the over 60s, and access to concessionary rates.

Cllr Phil Bevan, Cabinet Member for Education and Leisure, handed the prize over to Mischa at the recent 'Get Active Festival' at Heolddu Leisure Centre. "Congratulations to Mischa for being our 50,000th Smart Card member. It's fantastic to hear that so many people have signed up to the scheme in the last two years, and I hope that many more will follow in Misha's footsteps and access our leisure and library services in the swipe of a card," said Phil.
