Stage 1 – Stadium Roof Replacement
Work commenced on Stage 1 – Stadium Roof Replacement in the first week of May, however we were able to keep the stadium open until Monday 15th May, 2017. The work schedule is progressing well, however a few days have been lost due to wet weather. Smith Constructions have been good to deal with and if all goes to plan, the stadium will reopen on Monday 12th June, 2017!
The remainder of the Centre has remained ‘open for business’ throughout this period. The pool, gym, crèche, group fitness classes and squash have all continued with alternate entries being established. Wherever possible, programs which traditionally take place in the stadium, have been relocated into alternate venues within the Centre.
Re-roofing the sports stadium will continue next week, and we will also see the installation of the mechanical ventilation, the large ceiling fans and the new LED lighting into the sports stadium.
Update – 25th May, 2017 Notice four 25 May 2017

Stage 2 – Indoor Pool
Stage 2 will involve closure of the indoor pool. Shire officers have a site meeting with the architects and the builders on Monday 29th May, and we will have a clearer indication then as to the expected date of commencement of stage 2.
