Cricklade Leisure Centre update by Peter Colmer, Wiltshire Councillor

Cricklade Leisure Centre

I am extremely pleased to report that agreement has been reached with Wilshire Council to extend the lease arrangements that was due to expire in 2016 until 2046.

This agreement enables the Leisure Centre to apply for grant funding to enable significant improvements to the facility. I feel it also indicates Wiltshire Council’s confidence in our community run facility and hopefully they will inject significant capital funds to improve the facility so that it is sustainable in the long-term. As a community it is essential that we all utilise the facility so that it can be demonstrated that it is financially viable in the long term.Furthermore I can confirm that the current funding contribution by Wiltshire Council of £70k  will remain in place for the next financial year (subject to ratification by the full council meeting on 22nd. February)
