Executive Meets To Discuss Future Of Fusion Leisure Services

Tomorrow evening, the future of the District’s leisure services will be decided by just eight members of the Councils Executive Committee.

The stakes are high for residents with the contract looking under increasing pressure of financial collapse and we don’t think this is all down to COVID-19 closures, but the problems of this poorly performing contract have been exasperated.

Minority groups leaders have been allowed to submit one question each to the Executive Committee, however, we have been told by the leader of the Council, that a fuller debate should take place at the meeting of Full Council in October.

If you want to watch the debate tomorrow night it will be available via the live YouTube stream here.

  • I have been coming to this leisure centre since I was a little girl that was a very long time now. Over the years have been to a few and nothing comes up to this centre. The people that work there the activities that you offer, clean and tidy centre. Lovely pool.

    Feel that as a community a lot of people will be sorry to see this centre go. As helped a lot of people physically and mentally In these times, where a local centre is needed not another load of houses on a space of land.

  • Braintree have given Fusion £700k, West Devon £100k, South Hams £190k, Enfield have been asked for £1m.

    Fusion are essentially asking every council for money to reopen.

    What’s worrying is that all decisions (membership processing, equipment purchasing etc) are all made by head office, local centres have little control over anything.
