The final phase includes works to refurbish the free weights area in the lower gym, the group cycling studio, reception area, meeting rooms and changing rooms outside sports halls C and D. Further details can be seen below:
- LOWER GYM AND GROUP CYCLE STUDIO UPDATE
The building work is due to be completed week commencing 13th August, then the new equipment will be installed. The new gym will open on Thursday 23rd August.
