The Greig Leisure Centre, in Alcester, has reopened to the public following a month-long closure.

Sports and leisure operator, Everyone Active, took over management of The Greig Leisure Centre from
1 February 2020 in partnership with Stratford District Council. Following the takeover, the centre was closed for one month to allow for essential health and safety works to be carried out as well the following improvement works to the facilities:

  • Full redecoration
  • New low-energy lighting scheme
  • New flooring
  • New functional equipment
  • Fully repaired and serviced gym equipment
  • Fully repaired dance studio floor

Customers will also benefit from new changing and showering facilities as well as a new artificial football pitch, which is due to open in the summer. Works on the changing and showering facilities are set to start next week, and last four weeks.

Commenting on the refurbishments, Mandy Reason, member at The Greig Leisure Centre, said: "I can't believe the transformation! The gym is very good, very spacious."

Alex Fuoco-Lang, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: "We are really pleased to reopen the centre following the completion of much-needed repair and renewal works.

"Our priority was to get the fitness facilities open as soon as possible for customers to use which is why the refurbishment of the changing facilities has been scheduled to take place separately. We will update our customers via our website and social media pages when they reopen.

"At Everyone Active, we strive to deliver high quality facilities and services to offer the local community great places to get active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, it is great to work with Stratford District Council to improve The Greig Leisure Centre and offer the local community in Alcester an upgraded fitness experience."

Cllr Sarah Whalley-Hoggins says: "Phase one of the refurbishment programme has been completed and I'm delighted that the centre has reopened, but there's still work to be done. The District Council is committed to providing first class sport and leisure facilities for everyone to enjoy and is committed to investing in the leisure facilities at the Greig.  Our partners, Everyone Active are able to deliver quality leisure facilities and services, encouraging more people to live healthier and active lifestyles, which the residents of Alcester and the surrounding villages will benefit from."
