Centre work starts soon

WORKS will soon be carried out to improve parts of Ponteland Leisure Centre.

About £360,000 of funding from the county council has been allocated for repairs and maintenance, including the windows and roof.

This means that some areas of the facility off Callerton Lane will be closed at certain times while the works are being carried out.

The information was revealed at a Leisure Centre Users Group meeting and in his report to Ponteland Town Council, county councillor for Ponteland North Richard Dodd added that it was experiencing difficulties in recruiting bar and catering staff as well as someone for the events co-ordinator position.
