The Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre is run by volunteers and is kept going by the hard work of the voluntary committee, plus monies paid by user groups and importantly donations from local and regional businesses.
These donations allow the committee to raise standards and the doors, windows and kitchen are a result of these donations.
The major job of raising the roof and recladding the entire building is being worked towards and further grants are being applied for over the coming months.
The Centre is very important to the life of our parish and surrounding areas and without the support above it would not function and this would impact on all local residents, if closed the Parish Council would doubtless have to consider running the Centre with a potential increase in hiring charges.
To all our Donors and Volunteers – A Big Thank You!
