Councillor Fitzsimon was joined by the Leader of the Council, Councillor Tony Kingsbury, Councillor Terry Mitchinson, Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Ka Ng, WHBC Chief Executive as well as representatives from Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL) which manage the Swim Centre in partnership with the council.

The revamped facilities opened to the public from 21 September.  Among the many improvements that members can expect to see are new showers and lockers, changing benches, vanity areas, hair dryers and mirrors.  Careful consideration has also been given to making the new facilities as energy efficient as possible, with the use of LED lighting throughout.

Councillor Mitchinson said: "Hatfield Swim Centre is a great place to get fit, have fun and get together with friends and family.  The new changing room facilities are fantastic news for the many local members who use the Health and Fitness facilities at the Swim Centre. The health and wellbeing of residents across the borough is a priority for the council and we look forward to welcoming members and non-members to the wonderful facilities the Centre has to offer including a 33m pool, gym, fitness studio and spa."

Vishal Karia, GLL Partnership Manager said:

The new energy saving lighting, tiling, lockers, showers and other fixtures and fittings create a lighter and smarter atmosphere for customers and will, we hope, encourage more people to use the facilities.

GLL is a staff-owned charitable social enterprise which re-invests all surpluses into facilities and programmes for the benefit of customers.
