From January Selston Leisure Centre, currently operated by Everyone Active, will transfer its operation to Selston High School through Two Counties Trust.
The leisure centre is part of the High School campus, which is already owned by Two Counties Trust, who have experience in operating leisure centres within the community.
When Everyone Active cease operations on Christmas Eve it marks the latest stage in a district wide leisure transformation programme, showing the importance of working in partnership with community/sporting facilities, to ensure that they are affordable, accessible and creating sustainable communities.
A spokesperson for The Two Counties Trust said “We are committed to the future of Selston Leisure Centre and excited about the opportunities this venture brings for the local community. We are working with Everyone Active and Ashfield District Council to ensure that the transition is as seamless as possible”
Cllr Tom Hollis, Cabinet Member for Communities & Health says, “The Council remains committed to providing high quality sports and leisure facilities across the district. Selston Leisure Centre will continue to offer leisure facilities to the local community, and this is a great opportunity to empower the High School to take on the running of the on campus sports facilities.”
All teams are working hard to ensure that customers are not unduly affected by the transfer, with fees and charges remaining the same throughout and fitness customers having options to continue with their membership at Selston Leisure Centre
Richard Chatwin, Contract Manager for Ashfield said, “Everyone Active has successfully managed Selston Leisure Centre together with the Council’s other leisure sites for over 16 years. We fully support Ashfield DC’s Leisure transformation strategy and feel this is a great opportunity for the local community to continue using the centre now and in the future.”
