We would like to inform you that over the next few of weeks there may be restrictions to parking at the far end of our car park whilst the Town Council start work on expanding the number of parking spaces. We do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would ask that you factor this in to your travel time as you may require extra time to find a space or need to park further away.

However, of course, the good news is that once complete, we should have an extra 20 or so spaces for users of the leisure centre and recreation ground and we are sure you will agree that this will make a very positive difference to the centre, particularly during busy periods.

Thank you for your understanding during this time.


New and improved sessions for all the family! Suitable for all ages as there is an inflatable at the shallow end and the deep end of the pool.
