The Better Chipping Norton Leisure Centre was officially reopened this weekend by the towns mayor Georia Mazower. The hard work of the Better staff to get the facility ready was recognised along with it's contribution to the local community during lockdown.
The mayor stated “it’s an honour to be part of the reopening day at Chipping Norton Leisure Centre. I’ve had a tour and can see how hard staff at Better have worked to make it a coronavirus-safe environment for us all. And indeed some of the changes, for example the new one-way flow through the gym with more spacing between the equipment, feels like a great enhancement”.
During lockdown the Leisure Centre has become home to the local food initiative, the Chippy Larder. Better has always served the community but this new partnership has created stronger ties between it and our community, and the fact that, every week, staff from the Leisure Centre were part of the team that ran this community service is something Better should feel very proud of.”
