Cleethorpes Leisure Centre set for £317k revamp

Cleethorpes Leisure Centre’s changing rooms are set to be overhauled thanks to £317, 000 of NationalLottery funding from Sport England.

“Swimming is one of the most popular sports in our borough so we’re thrilled that our bid to create a new poolside changing village at Cleethorpes has been successful. This investment will bring the changing rooms bang up to date with a family friendly layout, cubicles with baby changing, better facilities for disabled people and individual shower cubicles. The new changing rooms will encourage more people to take up sport and make full use of the excellent leisure facilities we have in North East Lincolnshire.”

– Councillor Mick Burnett, North East Lincolnshire Council

The council submitted a funding bid to Sport England to contribute to a £635,000 refurbishment programme with the remainder of the budget coming from the council’s capital fund. Refurbishment work is set to be carried out during the winter of 2013.
