ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE TRANSFER of SpArC to SHROPSHIRE COUNCIL

March 9, 2020 8:24 PM

Dear All

For those of you who use the sports facilities or the Theatre , find below transfer arrangements.

ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE TRANSFER of SpArC to SHROPSHIRE COUNCIL

As you will likely be aware, Shropshire Council is taking over the management of SpArC Leisure Centre from Wednesday 1 April 2020.

Prior to this, we will be closing all the leisure facilities from Monday 30 March to Sunday 5 April 2020 inclusive. This temporary closure is for essential IT and telephone infrastructure and other equipment to be installed. This will help to ensure that operations at the Centre continue as normal and the ongoing service you receive is not affected. The Leisure Centre will re-open on Monday 6 April 2020.

The temporary closure of the leisure facilities does not affect the theatre, which will remain open during this period.

The GCSE Drama examination will go ahead on March 30 and the theatre will be open for "Box of Frogs" on 4 April, with tickets available from the box office as usual.

Arrangement with the schools affected have been made.

We appreciate that closure of the leisure facilities is not ideal, but there will be positive news to follow:

  • 16 spinning bikes in poor order will be replaced by 18 of the latest Kaiser bikes, which the SpArC Charity has invested in, using money collected from SpArC supporters
  • Children's Easter holiday activities are being organised, and booking arrangements will shortly be clarified
  • The broadband will be upgraded to enable the new IT infrastructure to work effectively.

We will keep you aware of any further news and updates.

Our team are more than happy to answer any queries or concerns you may have. You can either pop into the Leisure Centre before the planned temporary closure, call 01588 630243 or email Sparc.leisure@shropshire.gov.uk.
