New-look pools open at leisure centre

February 28 2020

CUSTOMERS made a splash at Kingswood Active Lifestyle Centre as both of the swimming pools reopened following a month-long £35,000 refurbishment project.

Essential maintenance work to reline, re-grout and refresh the pools started in early December, with the facilities springing back into action on Thursday 2nd January.

The refurbishment project is part of an ongoing commitment from Circadian Trust, the not-for-profit organisation which reinvests its profits back into local Active Lifestyle Centres.

The organisation has recently overseen major redevelopment projects in Bradley Stoke and Longwell Green, with extensive work to refurbish the gym in Yate and establish a brand-new conference centre in Thornbury taking place in the last year alone.

Martyn Hinam, centre manager at Kingswood Active Lifestyle Centre, said: “As a not for profit organisation, we continue to reinvest money back into Centres across South Gloucestershire so that we can offer the best-possible facilities to our customers.

“Our pools are extremely popular, and we feel privileged to have loyal members and learn to swim customers who regularly use them to keep fit, have fun and learn new skills. We hope they enjoy our improved pool facilities for many years to come.”

Kingswood Active Lifestyle Centre is one of five lifestyle centres operated across South Gloucestershire by Circadian Trust.
