Circadian Trust is to introduce new community services following the £1.5m extension and refurbishment of Longwell Green Lifestyle Centre in South Gloucestershire. The redevelopment, completed in late 2017, was delivered by Alliance Leisure in conjunction with Createability, and funded by South Gloucestershire Council.
The results of the redevelopment have enabled the centre to meet growing public demand for its facilities, including a new entrance and the refurbishment of the main foyer and reception area; new changing rooms; an extension to the gym and a new group exercise studio. The 10-month project also included arrangements to make the centre more accessible for disabled members. In addition to a variety of new exercise classes which are aimed at people of all levels of fitness, Circadian Trust is also currently developing a GP referral scheme at the centre, which will make full use of the new facilities.
Ben Beasley, director of commercial development at Circadian Trust says of the project, “Our mission at Circadian Trust is ‘Inspiring Active Lifestyles’ and we use our knowledge, expertise and support to encourage people to become active and lead a healthy lifestyle. The redevelopment at Longwell Green gives us even more facilities, equipment and opportunity to deliver this mission.”
Longwell Green Lifestyle Centre is one of seven Circadian Trust leisure sites and sports centres across South Gloucestershire.
