FREEDOM Leisure has added five Gloucestershire leisure centres to its portfolio by winning the contract to work in partnership with Forest of Dean District Council.
From this month, Freedom Leisure will take over the management of the council’s leisure facilities in the towns of Cinderford, Coleford, Lydney, Newent and Sedbury and will start to implement a modernisation programme to improve various aspects of the centres.
A budget of just over £1m has been set aside for the Forest of Dean and details of the improvement works will be announced soon.
Freedom Leisure managing director Ivan Horsfall Turner said: “We are extremely pleased to have been selected as the Forest of Dean District Council’s leisure partner and look forward to working closely with the local communities to improve their leisure facilities.
“We understand that the five leisure centres are highly regarded by the local community and our job is to maximise their potential and reward their loyal membership with updated and extended facilities and services.
“The council has run the centres extremely well and we are only too pleased to partner with them to take these facilities to the next level for the benefit and enjoyment of new and existing customers.”
