Leisure Centre Improvements

It’s well over a year now since Shropshire Council appointed Shropshire Community Leisure Trust, working with managing agent Serco Leisure, to manage five leisure centres across the county, as part of a new approach to the delivery of leisure activities, and so much progress has been made!

Here is an overview of the improvements made:

  • Each of the five centres has benefitted from £1.2 million worth of investment in terms of facilities and equipment. This includes the fitness suite refurbishments at Market Drayton, Shrewsbury Sports Village and Oswestry Leisure Centre. The Quarry has benefitted from shower and lighting upgrades and the introduction of direct debit payments for swimming lessons across the contract has been introduced to make life easier and increase payment options for parents.
     
  • Plans for continued investment into improving facilities include a funding bid which has been secured with Shropshire Council for £250,000 to redevelop the Market Drayton changing rooms in 2014.
     
  • Opening hours were extended at the leisure centres making the facilities even more accessible to the local community. Shrewsbury Sports Village now opens from 6.00am weekdays, Market Drayton Swimming & Fitness Centre from 6.30am weekdays and Oswestry Leisure Centre from 6.30am on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays.
     
  • To mark these achievements, friends and family were invited to the 1 year anniversary Open Day on 1st August to take part in a variety of FREE activities at all of our centres.

Our mission in Shropshire is a simple one - to provide active and healthy lifestyles for all, in a safe, warm, clean, friendly, fun environment for the local community, at an affordable cost.

Shropshire Community Leisure Trust celebrates first anniversary with community open day

July 2013

Shropshire Community Leisure Trust (SCLT) are hosting a fun and free Open Day for the local community on Thursday 1st August to celebrate its first anniversary of managing five of the county’s leisure centres on behalf of Shropshire Council, namely:

  • Market Drayton Swimming Centre;
  • Oswestry Leisure Centre;
  • Shrewsbury Sports Village and Indoor Bowls Hall;
  • Whitchurch Swimming Centre; and
  • The Quarry Fitness and Swimming Centre in Shrewsbury

A new approach

The 10 year contract, which commenced on 1st August 2012, heralded a new approach to service delivery in the county and SCLT, in partnership with managing agent, Serco and Shropshire Council and has made a number of improvements to services in the past year.

Each of the five centres have benefitted from £1.2 million worth of investment in terms of facilities and equipment. This includes the fitness suite refurbishments at Market Drayton, Shrewsbury Sports Village and Oswestry Leisure Centre. The Quarry has benefitted from shower and lighting upgrades and the introduction of direct debit payments for swimming lessons across the contract has been introduced to make life easier and increase payment options for parents.

Plans for continued investment into improving facilities include a funding bid which has been secured with Shropshire Council for £250,000 to redevelop Market Drayton changing rooms in 2013/14.

Opening hours were extended at the leisure centres making the facilities even more accessible to the local community. Shrewsbury Sports Village now opens from 6.00am weekdays, Market Drayton Swimming & Fitness Centre from 6.30am weekdays and Oswestry Leisure Centre from 6.30am on Mondays,Wednesday and Fridays.

These improvements’ resulted in increased patronage, particularly with the ‘health and fitness’ membership which has increased from just over 1,000 to over 3,500 in just 12 months.

Open Day

To mark these achievements, friends and family are invited to the Open Day and take part in a variety of FREE activities which will be taking place at each of the five centres. This includes, workout taster classes and "Have a go" sports hall games including Badminton and Table Tennis. 

In addition, there is the chance to win a one year health & fitness membership and one term of swimming lessons via our Facebook pages, GymIn Shrops and SwimIn Shrops.

Brian Taylor,Chairman of Shropshire Community Leisure Trust commented: “We are delighted by how much progress has been made in the past year. The huge amount of investment in the facilities has already seen large increases in patronage and the creation of 10new jobs. The Open Days at the facilities are the perfect opportunity to come along and see the changes first hand and we very much look forward to celebrating with the local community on 1st August.”

Shropshire Community Leisure Trust’s mission is a simple one – to provide active and healthy lifestyles for all, in a safe, warm, clean, friendly, fun environment for the local community, at an affordable cost.
