freedom leisure to remain active in Uckfield

July 6 2022

We are delighted to announce that following agreement with both Wealden District Council and East Sussex County Council, we will continue to manage Uckfield Leisure Centre.

All parties have agreed to extend the management contract of your local community leisure centre and we will remain open for business, providing a valuable service for the local community so you can remain active and support your healthy lifestyles.

The agreement is that Uckfield Leisure Centre’s contract will be extended for a further year (until July 2023) meaning that residents and other visitors are assured of a continued service in the short to medium term.

We are especially pleased because we have managed Uckfield since we were formed in 2002 and in that time there has been significant investment in the centre with improved facilities and equipment to the benefit of all visitors.

“We are very pleased that an agreement has been reached to keep Uckfield Leisure Centre 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

We hope that you are as pleased with this news as we are and we very much look forward to seeing you soon.
