The £1 million make over at Middleton Pool and Fitness Centre in Newport Pagnell is just about complete.
Work at the centre, which is managed by Places for People Leisure on behalf of Newport Pagnell Town Council, started in July 2017 has seen a 200 sq m fitness suite, complete with Precor CV equipment and Matrix strength kit, built on to the side of the building, along with brand new dry side changing facilities.
Simon Churchman, Contracts Manager for Places for People said: “Middleton Pool was built back in 1957 as an open air lido, but a roof was put on in 1989 to ensure the pool was viable 12 months a year. However, people now demand a wider choice for their exercise options and so adding a fitness suite to the offering was a natural progression. Createability’s plans look amazing and we are all really excited to see the finished result.”
Remedial work to upgrade the pool, pool hall, plant room and wet side changing will also take place as part of a long term programme to ensure the leisure centre, remains viable.
Ian Cotgrave, Managing Director of Createability said: “The new fitness suite will cater for the residents of Newport Pagnell and the surrounding area. Initial interest is promising for the new purpose built facility, which is a very welcome addition for the community, helping to secure the long term future of the leisure centre.”
