Refurbished leisure centre opens its doors  

Managers at Chipping Norton Leisure Centre are inviting residents to try out its facilities and activities at a special open day. 

The Centre has benefited from a new £100,000 multi-use games area sourced from section 106 developer funding in the town with more than £150,000 being spent on upgrading and improving the gym thanks to backing from the Council and its leisure provider GLL Better.

Now users and guests can enjoy the full range of sessions and facilities at the open day on Saturday 6 July. 

Phil Stanley, Community Sports Officer at GLL Better, said: “Our sessions are all about having fun and socialising. They have been designed to suit all abilities and levels of fitness. We hope to encourage older members of the community to become more active and enjoy the health and social benefits that getting involved can offer.” 

Cllr Michele Mead, Cabinet Member for Health and Leisure, added: “We are investing in facilities across the District and Chipping Norton is no exception. This leisure centre has something for everyone and I would encourage everyone to see it for themselves.” 

Activities available on the day will include swimming, aerobics, gym workout sessions and yoga. Activities between 7am and 3pm will be free of charge.
