Alfreton, Ripley and William Gregg VC Leisure Centres, operated on behalf of Amber Valley Borough Council by DC Leisure Management Ltd, will see some exciting changes over the next few months. DC Leisure has announced a change of name to that of its new owner - ‘Places for People Limited’.
Business remains the same at all three Leisure Centres, where customers will still have access to the same exercise programme schedule, opening hours and gym facilities. It’s simply some of the brands over the coming months will change on site. The management of the centres will now be operated under the name of ‘Places for People Leisure’.
Jackie Goacher, Contract Manager, says: “It’s an exciting time for the leisure centres and our customers. Our staff will be wearing new uniforms and customers will notice new logos on leaflets and posters around the centre, but ultimately we will still deliver the same level of excellent service and varied programme of exercise classes. We will continue to be a community-minded facility bursting with passion and enthusiasm to get local people more physically active.”
Alfreton, Ripley and William Gregg VC Leisure Centres all offer weekly classes and activities as well as a variety of sports clubs and swimming sessions for all ages and abilities.
Councillor Stephen Hayes, Cabinet Member for Health and Leisure comments: “We are very supportive of the changes announced and look forward to continued success for our award winning Leisure Centres and hope that more and more residents will make use of the excellent facilities and programmes”.
‘Places for People Leisure’ currently partners 30 local authorities, managing over 100 leisure centres across England. Its sites attract 25 million visits each year and over the past seven years the award winning organisation has built 12 new leisure facilities. Its core mission is to continue to create active places and healthy people.
