Update: Sunday, 12:30 p.m.

Spaces available for the free swim and skate are filling up quickly.

Ian James, diretor of community services for the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, said with the colder weather and long weekend, they are seeing a higher demand for both the pool and rink on Family Day and also on Sunday.

Spaces are limited due to reduced capacity because of COVID-19, however, James said, there are waitlists for Sunday in which staff will call if spaces open up.

He also encourages anyone wanting to take part in the free swim or skate Monday but the time slot is full, to try calling the complex Monday to see if any spaces opened up.

Hours for CMRC Monday are noon to 3 p.m.
