Dorchester's New Multimillion Pound Sports Centre Open
7:49am 22nd October 2012
Dorchester's new multimillion pound sports centre opens today.
The brand new facility includes an Olympic sized swimming pool, modern gym and state of the art fitness studio.
Old facilities at the former Thomas Hardye Leisure Centre next door have been scaled down BUT the old sports hall will stay open for community use.
The Head teacher for Thomas Hardye School, Mike Foley also believes that the new facilities will prove to be a great asset for the area: "This is an exciting time for sport in Dorchester and I am looking forward to working with 1610 to develop opportunities for our young people in school and in the wider community.
These fantastic facilities will give us a chance to increase participation and aim for sporting excellence in the years ahead. What better legacy could we have from the summer of 2012?"
