Trialling changes to the programme at Sandy Sports and Community Centre

Thursday, 11 July 2019

SLL is currently consulting staff on some changes to the programme at Sandy Sports and Community Centre. This is because from August 2019 for 3 months, we are planning to pilot some changes to the programmed activities, times and rooms for some of the leisure centre services held in Sandy Secondary School.

The school has expanded rapidly in recent years and we have been asked to test using different rooms for our leisure services, to enable them to better accommodate their increased pupil numbers.

The proposal is to:

  • reduce the use of the dining areas, and making more use of alternative space in the school instead. This would not affect table tennis, which will continue to be accommodated in dining area 2
  • make some changes to dates/times of programmed workout activities. These changes will be minimal and every effort will be made to maintain the full programme of activities within the centre

Once the staff consultation has been concluded we will provide more information about the changes and, during the trial, there will be an opportunity to give us feedback via a questionnaire. We will use this feedback to understand any effects on customers, and to guide any future decisions.
