It has been developed to serve a variety of local and sub-regional sports, recreation, fitness and well-being outcomes.

“We are delighted to appoint an experienced operator to manage the operations of this sub-regional centre.  Belgravia will work closely with all stakeholders, including sports groups, those wanting to use the gym facilities, and our schools.  

“With capital works shortly to be completed, and an opening planned for early in the new year, getting the operator in place now is important.”
