Wokingham healthy leisure contract extended0
Management of three of Wokingham Borough Council’s leisure centres will remain with the Community Sport and Leisure Trust (C-Salt) supported by Leisure Connection until 2018, the council’s decision-making executive agreed on October 31.
Executive members approved the recommendation to extend C-Salt’s management contract for three years, after hearing of the leisure improvements and benefits being enjoyed by local residents and savings to the public purse under the current agreement.
The contract extension – it was due to finish in May 2015 – will also mean additional investment by C-Salt for the centres including improved changing facilities, new studio and spinning space and new water features at two swimming pools.
The centres Loddon Valley, St Crispin’s and the Carnival Pool provide affordable leisure activities which support the priorities in the borough’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
