Everyone Active secures 11 new sites

Everyone Active is managing 190 leisure and cultural facilities across the country on behalf of more than 60 local authorities after securing 11 additional sites. The operator has started working with

Harborough District Council to manage two leisure centres in Market Harborough and Lutterworth as well as three leisure centres and three dual-use sites in a 10-year agreement with North Norfolk District Council, which includes the construction of a £10.7m leisure centre to replace the 30-year-old Splash Centre in Sheringham. In an extension of its partnership with Blaby

District Council, the operator will continue to manage Enderby Leisure Centre in Leicestershire and take on the operation of the Pavilion Leisure Centre in Huncote. More than £5m is being invested into the two centres to improve facilities. Everyone Active has also started a 25-year

partnership with North West Leicestershire District Council to manage Hood Park Leisure Centre in Ashby de-le-Zouch and Hermitage Leisure Centre in Whitwick. Hermitage Leisure Centre is due to be replaced by a new centre in Coalville in 2021.

Work starts on Winchester’s new Sport & Leisure Centre

Willmott Dixon has started work on site for a new Sport & Leisure Centre for Winchester. The centre will replace River Park Leisure

Centre, which is coming to the end of its useful life. Facilities will include a 50m pool, separate training pool, hydrotherapy suite, a 200- station gym, two studios, a group cycling studio, squash courts, treatment rooms and an eight- court sports hall. The project has been developed in

partnership with Hampshire County Council, the University of Winchester and Hampshire charity The Pinder Trust, which has supported Winchester City Council in delivering the centre’s hydrotherapy suite. The hydrotherapy pool will be used by patients with long term

health conditions on weekdays during the day. At other times it will be available for public use for physiotherapy, sports injuries, pain relief or general relaxation. Energy usage is a key consideration and

natural light and ventilation will be used where possible. It is anticipated energy usage per square metre per annum will be significantly better than the existing centre (by around 27 per cent). Using Passive design and energy efficiency

measures, the council aims to achieve a 16.8 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions beyond the Building Regulations, an EPC(A) rating, and a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. The centre is due to open in 2021.

£39m Suffolk hub will integrate community and public services

Construction is underway on a multi-million pound community hub that will combine health, leisure, education and public services. The Mildenhall Hub in Suffolk will create

leisure facilities including a larger swimming pool as well as a school, health centre, children’s centre, public library, Job Centre, Citizen’s Advice Bureau and space for Suffolk Police, West Suffolk Council and Suffolk County Council. Mildenhall Hub is already recognised as a


significant project in the government’s national One Public Estate Programme. “We are delighted to support the exciting

Mildenhall Hub project with £2m of funding. In line with Sport England's design guidance, a range of partners is working together on the Hub to make the community's life easier by bringing together a range of services in one place,” says Kevin Mills, Sport England’s director of capital investment. “Sport England's role is to make it easier for

people to get active, and we know from the other co-location projects already in operation that the model prompts increases in visitor numbers, particularly from groups less likely to be active, such as women, disabled people and those with long term health conditions.” Funding for the project is coming from Forest

Heath District Council, the Department for Education, Suffolk County Council, Academy Transformation Trust, Sport England and Suffolk Police.
