Funding for Carn Brea Leisure Centre

George recently visited Carn Brea Leisure Centre to discuss an upcoming refurbishment project. Funding has been secured from Sport England to refurbish the swimming pool and deliver other maintenance and improvements.

The work will start this summer, and will finish at the end of the year. It will ensure that facilities are sustained for existing users, as well as the next generation of swimmers. Carn Brea is Cornwall’s first Charitable Trust Leisure Centre, and provides health and wellbeing facilities in the heart of our local area. During the pool refurbishment, facilities including the gym, running track, café and fitness classes will still be open.

George said “Like many people who grew up in this part of Cornwall, I have fond childhood memories of Carn Brea Leisure Centre. It has been an essential part of the local community for well over forty years. We now need to focus our efforts on raising the remaining funds needed. I hope that the fundraising campaign will be a real community effort, in the true spirit of Carn Brea”.
