A big splash for new-look leisure centre in Uckfield
9:30am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
Uckfield Leisure Centre re-opened to the public after eight months of improvement works.
The £700,000 project was funded jointly by Wealden District Council and Freedom Leisure.
The local community was invited to a fun family open day on Saturday to try out the new facilities ahead of the official re-opening on Monday.
Brian Redman, chairman of Wealden District Council, said: “I took great pleasure in re-opening the Uckfield Leisure Centre and am very impressed by the transformation that has taken place there.
“The work is part of a £7.4 million programme of development Wealden has committed to the district’s four leisure centres.”
Stuart Crawford, centre manager at Freedom Leisure Uckfield, said: “We are delighted with the modernisation and improvements made and feel confident that people will make the most of the opportunities we have.
“We did our utmost to minimise disruption and keep the centre open for the majority of the works.
“I would like to thank the Freedom Leisure team for their help, our visitors for their patience and the council for sharing our confidence in the project from start to finish.
“The open day for the public was a great success and I’m looking forward to welcoming people back to enjoy the modernised facilities for many years to come.”
