A SQUADRON of white vans is a sure sign work is progressing at Stonehaven Leisure Centre, with a Life Life Aberdeenshire spokesman confirming everything is on track for a ‘mid-summer’ opening.

The refurbishment, includes improvements voted for during 2022’s participatory budget exercise, with £1.4 million allocated to:

  • A new dance/fitness studio area incorporating a new sound system, lighting, and a suite of spin bikes to expand the group exercise programme capacity. This will realise additional capacity in the main sports hall that can be offered to sports clubs and groups or be utilised to further expand the centre’s programme.
  • A new gym space fully kitted out with the latest exercise equipment, improving the experience for existing service users, and attracting new participants..
  • Upgraded lighting in the pool area.
  • A PAMIS changing space to enhance the provision within the Queen Elizabeth Park area for people with special needs and disabilities.

In addition, the old male and female changing rooms in the building, which dates back to 1985, are being refurbished into a changing village set-up with new lockers and cubicles.
