Breaking news

Councilour Dan Manville announced on social media that the Leisure Centre is to remain open

He wrote "UCKFIELD LEISURE CENTRE IS STAYING OPEN!! WE DID IT! Huge news just arrived today - East Sussex County Council and Wealden District Council are signing a new 19 year lease to Save Uckfield Leisure Centre and keep it open!

Over 3300 people filled in the consultation, shouting loud and clear that we wanted to keep our leisure centre and pool open. I am so pleased to be able to tell you that they listened to us!

It's an absolutely huge victory for the campaign, which only started in earnest a few months ago.

I cannot tell you how pleased and relieved I am, both for residents and the staff. I have just been telling the staff at the leisure centre, whose jobs have been on the line. Their patience and dedication has been brilliant at such a difficult time.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the campaign, everyone who filled in the consultation, and who came to the rally. Your support has been immeasurable and I am pleased to say, worthwhile.The fine details are yet to be made public, but we did it. We did it!"

We are still awaiting an official press release from WDC or the operator Freedom Leisure. Source Dan Manville on Social Media.
