New gyms at Lammas and Hucknall leisure centres take a step closer

Upgrades on two of the region's leisure centres have taken a step closer to completion.

Work to both Lammas Leisure Centre and Hucknall Leisure Centre is "gathering pace" according to council leaders.

The improvements form part of an overall £20million investment into new and existing sites across the District by Ashfield District Council and Everyone Active, including a new £15.5million facility in Kirkby which is due to open next year.

If you're itching to get your fitness regime back on track then the latest update shows that a large extension is being added to the existing fitness suite at Lammas in Sutton in Ashfield and the proposed area is now open plan. Scaffolding has been erected so a gym wall can be constructed, with work on track to be finished by the end of August.

Once complete, the state-of-the-art gym will include a huge cardio area with the latest Technogym equipment, including climbers, treadmills, cross trainers and bikes. Also part of the set-up will be all-new resistance machines, a huge free weight area and a large functional area with bespoke rig.

The new fitness suite at Hucknall is also inching closer to completion with recent work focusing on tasks including installing flooring and electrics, ahead of opening in early August.

The existing gym is being moved and extended and, as at Lammas, will feature the latest Technogym kit, including treadmills, bikes, and an Olympic power rack.

Work will soon begin on the centre’s new £2.7m additional swimming poo l. This phase of work will also see a new changing village introduced and additional car parking added to the site.

As both sites continue their transformations., operator Everyone Active, which runs the centres in partnership with Ashfield District Council, welcomed Leader of the Council Cllr Jason Zadrozny and Cabinet Member for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Rachel Madden to cast an eye over progress being made at Lammas.

Cllr Rachel Madden, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing, said: "The improvements currently underway will truly transform leisure provision in this area. In all corners of the District we are putting our money where our mouth is and taking huge steps to change Ashfield for the better.

"It’s exciting to see Lammas and Hucknall’s gyms taking shape. The progress made on the new centre in Kirkby is staggering and I for one can’t wait for it to open its doors next year!"

Lorenzo Clark, Everyone Active’s contract manager, added: "We are looking forward to these gyms serving their communities’ needs for years to come.

"Both gyms are huge and are filled with a wide variety of top-of-the-range equipment, meaning there will be something for everyone."
