Councillor Hamill commented, “I am delighted to see the official reopening of this facility.

“Council recently launched its new leisure brand, which aims to encourage our residents to take part in physical exercise and be MORE active, MORE often.

“Facilities like these are the perfect opportunity to engage our residents in physical activity and lead them to a healthier lifestyle.

“I am delighted that Council has been able to fund such a worthwhile project and I am sure that the new equipment will be well used by the local community.”
