On the 22nd of July a week before it’s grand opening, Anna and Fred from Thurlow Park and Councillor Niranjan Francis from Gypsy Hill had a guided tour of the new West Norwood Leisure Centre. The centre combines an integrated approach to community health and well being hosting a gym and a swimming pool alongside a GPs surgery and dental surgery.
The state of the art swimming pool has a moveable floor allowing the pool to be used for a variety of different activities and classes. The leisure centre is intended to operate as a community hub bringing together services and the wider community to enjoy an integrated approach to health and wellbeing. It represents a real achievement on the part of all of those in Lambeth Labour and the wider community who have worked so hard to deliver it since 2009.
