Britannia Leisure Centre to reopen Saturday

Following last week’s fire in the health suite at Britannia Leisure Centre, all testing and repair work to the Centre’s communal areas, pools, gym, studio, squash courts and sports hall is now complete. These parts of the building will open at 8am this Saturday 16 February, with only the health suite remaining closed.

The Council’s health and safety team are still carrying out an investigation in Britannia’s health suite, supported by forensic investigators, to help determine the cause of the fire and what action may need to be taken to minimise the risk of something like this happening again.

Cllr Jon Burke, Cabinet Member for Energy, Sustainability, & Community Services
We’ve been determined to get Britannia Leisure Centre open again as quickly as possible so the community can start using its facilities again, and I’m delighted to say that from 8am on Saturday, it will reopen. I’d like to thank customers for their patience over the last 10 days while we’ve been carrying out this essential work, as well as staff from Better Leisure, the Council and our contractors for their hard work in getting the building reopened as quickly as possible.
