TIME is running out for families to collect their Sea Life annual passes.

But don’t panic if you can’t get to Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park over the weekend as the cut-off point for redeeming tokens has been extended until Monday.

The Dorset Echo has once again teamed up with Sea Life for the fantastic offer.

It gives readers the chance to purchase a Sea Life annual pass for £16 for an adult (normally £40) or £12 for a child (normally £30).

The pass entitles the holder to 12 months’ entry to the park and Sea Life Tower plus a variety of added extras including discounted entry to Abbotsbury Tourism attractions.

Due to overwhelming demand and severe weather forecast for today, the deadline to redeem tokens for passes has been extended until 4pm on Monday.

To take advantage of the offer, simply collect four differently numbered tokens from editions of the Dorset Echo, from the week beginning January 27, along with the application form printed in the February 1 edition.

Each adult and child will need a separate application form and tokens.

Take the completed form, four tokens and two passport-sized photographs of each person to Sea Life at Greenhill between 11am and 4pm today, tomorrow or Monday. Back copies of the Echo can be purchased from Sea Life, or from Echo offices in Weymouth and Dorchester.

Both offices are closed for the weekend but will reopen Monday.

Dorset Echo promotions manager Debbie Hellaby said: “The offer has proved extremely popular and we would urge families who haven’t got their passes yet to do so before time runs out.

“Don’t forget if your child turns three in the next year it’s worth getting a pass for them too as they will have to pay for entry once they are three.”
