The Chairman of Babergh District Council, Kathryn Grandon, carried out the official opening attended by Councillor Jan Osborne, Warren Smith (CEO Abbeycroft), Tracey Loynds (Development Director) and Duncan Clark (MD Beardwell Construction).

The project included:

  • a two-storey extension to house a new community and exercise room and dance studio
  • extended and refurbished 100 station gym, increasing capacity from 40 stations
  • improved fitness changing rooms
  • new poolside wet changing and toilet facilities
  • improved lighting, décor, and mechanical equipment

Councillor Davis, cabinet member for communities at Babergh District Council, said:

“We’ve invested in the Kingfisher Leisure Centre, as part of our wider vision for Sudbury, to ensure we have the right facilities for Babergh’s residents to remain healthy and active for years to come.

“With work carried out in a phased approach, customers have been able to continue to enjoy their leisure activities throughout construction. I hope the enjoyment of getting active at the centre will continue for future generations”.
