Refurbishment plans unveiled for leisure centres

Refurbishment plans unveiled for leisure centres

Detailed plans have been revealed for the intended refurbishment of Blaby District Council's two leisure centres.

From April 2019, the Pavilion Leisure Centre in Huncote and Enderby Leisure Centre will be managed and operated by Everyone Active, and now artist impressions of improvements to be made to the centres have been unveiled to the public.

More than £4.5m is being invested by the leisure operator and Blaby District Council to modernise facilities at Enderby Leisure Centre and the Pavilion Leisure Centre, which will also receive a high-quality renovation. More »

Phase one of the renovation at Enderby Leisure Centre will start in May 2019 and is expected to be completed in the Autumn. It will see an extension of the existing gym and new fitness equipment installed, along with a new group cycling studio and state-of-the-art spa area. The sports hall and gym changing facilities are to be refurbished, and carpet in the bowls hall replaced.

Phase two will commence after the completion of phase one, and will consist of an expanded and modernised cafe, plus a refurbishment of the swimming pool and swim changing facilities. In addition, brand new 3G football pitches will be installed.

Updates to Pavilion Leisure Centre include a state-of-the-art 60-station gym over two levels, a refreshed studio, refurbished changing rooms and redecoration of the existing fitness and social suite. Work will commence from Summer 2019.

An exhibition showcasing artist impressions of the new facilities and renovation plans will be displayed at the Blaby District Council main office in Narborough before being moved to Enderby Leisure Centre on 16th March.

John Richardson, Strategic Director at Blaby District Council, said: "We're extremely excited to see these plans and it highlights our commitment to using leisure to improving resident's health.

"This is a significant investment to ensure that both leisure centres have modern, attractive facilities. The long-term benefits will ensure that Blaby District continues to be a great place to live."

James Naylor, Everyone Active Contract Manager, said: "We're thrilled to be involved in such a positive investment in Blaby's leisure facilities which will ultimately benefit the local community on their health and fitness journey.

"We're now at a stage where we can unveil realistic artist impressions of the new facilities, which is very exciting and will give people a flavour of the fantastic new-look centres we're working toward. We will be communicating with customers directly with updates on the project and about any ongoing disruption which may occur."

Have your say on how the NHS should change in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland

Have your say on how the NHS should change in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland

Independent health and care champions Healthwatch Leicester, Healthwatch Leicestershire and Healthwatch Rutland are launching a 'What would you do?' campaign to encourage people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) to share their views about what local NHS services should look like.

Our new campaign aims to encourage people to share their views about how extra money from the Government should be spent on local NHS services. More »

The Government is investing £20 billion a year in the NHS as part of the NHS Long Term Plan. Local organisations are now being asked to explore how services should change locally to make the NHS work better for people.

We want to hear from local people about what works, what doesn't work and how people think local health services should be improved.

Micheal Smith, Manager of Healthwatch Leicester and Healthwatch Leicestershire, said: "We know that the NHS only works when people's voices are heard. This is a once in a generation chance for local people to help decide where this extra money from Government should be spent in our NHS services in LLR.

"We want to hear from as many people, groups and communities as possible to ensure the local plans reflect the needs of our population. We want to hear about what works, what doesn't and how people think local health services should be improved. No matter how big or small the issue, we want to hear about it. Sharing your experience with us is quick and easy - and could make a big difference."

Tracey Allan-Jones, Manager of Healthwatch Rutland, said: "The NHS Long Term Plan sets out ambitions for ensuring that the NHS is fit for the future over the next ten years and describes what health services can do better for people across the country. Our Healthwatch "What would you do?" campaign will help to shape what changes should look like locally in our communities in LLR to achieve those ambitions.

"Patients are experts on how it feels to receive care from the NHS and you all have your individual stories. By sharing them with us using the surveys and other events, you can make your voice heard."

Online Surveys

Share your views with Healthwatch LLR and help make care better. There are two public surveys to capture your views and you can fill in one or both of them.

1. What would you do to give people more control over their care?
Tell us what your local NHS can do to help you and your community stay well and provide better support.

2. What would you do to give people better support?
Select and share your experience of care for specific conditions such as heart and lung disease, cancer, dementia, learning disability, diabetes, arthritis, mental ill-health, autism and so on.

Your local NHS needs to hear from you about how it can provide better care for people living with these conditions.

We will also be holding engagement events and focus groups across LLR. Details of these activities will be found at and in due course. » Less
