We are delighted to announce that following agreement with both Wealden District Council and East Sussex County Council, we will continue to manage Heathfield Leisure Centre in the short term.
All parties have agreed to extend the management contract of your local community leisure centre so we can continue to provide a valuable service for the local Heathfield community and you can remain active and support your healthy lifestyle.
The management contract will be extended for 3 months and will provide East Sussex County Council with an opportunity to conduct further consultation enabling the general public and other key community groups and stakeholders to have their say on its future operation and management.
We are very pleased that an agreement has been reached to keep Heathfield open for the short term. At Freedom Leisure we are absolutely committed to working with all parties to secure their longer term future. This should give reassurance to our customers that we are still open and remain very much in the heart of the community, providing vital physical and mental health benefits through exercise and realising our vision of - improving lives through leisure.Ivan Horsfall Turner, Freedom Leisure’s CEO
