Freedom Leisure in Ashford

September 1 2020

On September 1st Freedom Leisure will take over the management of the leisure facilities in Ashford on behalf of Ashford Borough Council. Freedom Leisure is a not-for-profit leisure trust which manages leisure and cultural facilities on behalf of partners across the UK.

The facilities at the Julie Rose Stadium have been enhanced to offer a larger gym space and an improved group exercise programme to maintain health and fitness opportunities in Ashford. We look forward to welcoming current and new customers to the centre and there are some great membership options available.

We are very excited about working with Freedom Leisure over the next 15 years to enhance the leisure offer and provide active recreation for everyone in order to support healthy lifestyles.
