Opening date for swim pool

Posted onPosted on 12th Mar

Warsop Health Hub, which will include a swimming pool and splash play area, changing village, gym, multi-purpose hall, café, and community space area, is to open on 1st June ahead of schedule.

There will also be a multi-use games area behind the hub building.

Centre operators More Leisure Community Trust (MCLT) and Serco Leisure have begun advertising for roles at the centre, including lifeguards, swimming teachers, and duty managers.

Serco has been working with Meden School pupils to offer them the chance of free lifeguard training in the hope that they will get a job at the local hub.

The £9.2m hub has been made possible thanks to funding agreements secured by Mansfield District Council, which itself has contributed up to £5m — a £1.8m capital grant from Sport England, a £3m allocation from the government’s Towns Fund, and £103,967 from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and

Communities to create a dedicated changing place within the building.

Solar panels have been installed along with a new water detention basin, as part of Severn Trent’s sustainable drainage systems project.

Coun Andy Burgin, portfolio holder for Environment and Leisure at Mansfield District Council, said: “To see the tiles for the pool being laid, the rooms taking shape, and the multi-use hall all starting to look like the facilities we had envisaged is a dream come true.”
