Northfield Pool and Leisure Centre


This morning alongside the Northfield Labour team I visited the site of the new Northfield Pool and Leisure Centre for an update on progress at the site.

Once completed, the new facility will include a 25 metre / 6 lane swimming pool, a training / learner pool, wet and dry changing areas, a fitness suite, a dance studio and a community room.

Progress at the site is going well. It is scheduled for opening in the Spring and, from what I saw today, the new facility will be a great asset to our community.
