Doors open on Morpeth’s flagship new Sports & Leisure Centre

Website Morpeth Opening Day

Hundreds of residents have visited Morpeth’s fantastic new sports and leisure centre as the doors opened to the public for the first time.

Situated on Gas House Lane, the £21 million centre offers a whole new customer experience for all ages of the local community.

The centre has been buzzing with activity as fitness classes got into full swing, the swimming pool was in action and the state-of-the-art gym in use.

Some people came to have a cuppa and catch up with friends in the new Hive cafe while their children explored the new soft play, others enjoyed the peace and relaxation of the new Tranquillity Spa.

Mark Warnes, chief executive of Active Northumberland said:

“The new facilities will transform the way sport and activity is provided in the area, offering opportunities for the whole community to enjoy. The atmosphere in the centre is fantastic. It’s a high quality, welcoming and modern environment, the equipment is state-of-the-art and our experienced team of friendly staff are here to help support local people on their personal health and wellbeing journey.“
