Work is complete on the latest development at Hyndburn Leisure Centre, the Thermal Suite. The luxury health suite has been designed by Pulse Fitness and includes a brand new steam room with almost double the capacity, modern changing facilities, feature shower, sauna, treatment room and more.

The facility will be officially opened by the Worshipful the Mayor of Hyndburn, Councillor Peter Britcliffe this week. Leisure staff will then be putting in place the finishing touches over the weekend ready for customers to use from Monday 22nd January.

The Mayor said, “I’m delighted to have been invited to open this new facility at Hyndburn Leisure Centre. As a Board Member, it’s been exciting times seeing recent developments at the Borough’s main leisure facilities, and I’m sure that members will welcome this development.”

Joanne Mortimer, Head of Leisure Facilities said, “We have an ongoing improvement plan for our facilities, and the health suite at Hyndburn Leisure Centre has been top of the list for a while. It’s been an area which has been the focus of customer feedback in recent years so we are sure that customers old and new will be delighted that we have responded to demand and improved this facility.”

“Access to the new Thermal Suite will be completely free for Lifestyle and Premier members, and will form part of our membership packages which includes access to the gym or ladies only feelgood suite, swimming and unlimited fitness classes. We hope the improvements will bring in a new wave of members, and of course attract one off visits from anyone who wants to treat themselves to relax in comfort in the Thermal Suite, which will be ccomplementedby a range of treatment options available from our partner’s at Hair and Beauty.”

The refurbishment comes on the back of other recent major works at the centre, including the refurbishment of the swimming pool and the construction of a new children’s play and party centre, Adventure City.

Ciaran Wells, Chair of the Board at Hyndburn Leisure added, “The public sector leisure industry is changing. Our grant to operate leisure facilities is being reduced year on year, which is why we need to be smart with investments which will lead to savings or new income streams. The new Thermal Suite is fantastic and will bring in new members to Hyndburn Leisure Centre, which is vital if we are to continue to operate an excellent public facility.

The new sauna and steam area will open for business from 6.30am on Monday 22nd January 2018. More information is available by visiting
