To celebrate the completion of the new £2.7million family pool at Hucknall Leisure Centre, Ashfield Council and facility operator Everyone Active are throwing a pool party on Saturday, July 15.

The council has now spent £5.5 million on Hucknall Leisure Centre, as part of an overall £22.5 million investment into the district’s leisure centres, which has transformed the venue into a fully equipped, modern facility.

The second pool is the final piece of a two-year programme in Hucknall that has included a new gym, a refurbished reception and main entrance area, three new group exercise studios – a multipurpose exercise studio, indoor cycling studio and Earth studio – a refurbished wet side changing rooms to a changing village, redecoration and refurbishment of the squash courts and sports hall floor an ad a new health hub facility.

Lorenzo Clark, Everyone Active’s contract manager, added: “The learner pool has been a big hit with the local community so far.

"The lessons that are taking place in the pool are enabling children and adults to have fun and be active, while teaching a skill which will prove invaluable throughout their lives.

"We offer award-winning lessons for all ages, with child classes starting at four months, and would encourage people to contact the leisure centre for more information if they are interested in increasing their water confidence.”

The new pool party will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm and families can call the leisure centre now to book one of the 45-minute time slots available at 9.30am, 10.15am, 11am, and 11.45am.
