Work on the £2 million redevelopment of Long Stratton Leisure centre is well underway and after a two-day closure, to move equipment, the centre is now open as usual.
South Norfolk Council is transforming the centre into a modern sports and community hub that will offer activities to suit all ages and abilities.
South Norfolk Council’s Cabinet Member Yvonne Bendle said:
“Enabling our residents to keep active and stay healthy is one of our main priorities and the state of the art facilities offered by the new centre will definitely help us achieve our aim.
“We’d like to thank our members for bearing with us over the next few months while the improvement work is underway. We have moved the gym equipment and bikes into the main hall and we have sectioned off an area for classes, ensuring that no one will miss their favourite activity.
“Long Stratton is set to grow with 1,800 new homes and it’s important that we invest in the leisure centre to make sure that it fits the needs of a growing population. ”
The new-look centre which will be ready by January 2019, includes a new first floor extension, brand new changing facilities, two studios, an exclusive fitness suite, a café and a large soft play area. There will also be new fitness equipment and improvements to the car park.
In 2015, the Council invested £4million in Wymondham Leisure Centre and since then it has more than doubled its membership.
