Isle of Wight leisure facility to reopen

The Isle of Wight Council has announced one of the island's most popular leisure facilities is to reopen by the end of the year after extensive refurbishment work is carried out.

Swimming pools are a major part of the project at The Heights Leisure Centre in Sandown, which is set to be open to the public once more in October.

According to the local authority, a major two-phase refurbishment is currently taking place, while building work found that the roofs above both swimming pools need a complete rebuild.

"Excavation works also showed that a gas main was not in the area provided by utility plans and required moving," the council added.

In total, more than £2.5 million is being spent on the refurbishment of the leisure facility, with the project including changing rooms, a new-look cafeteria and a second activity studio, as well as the upgrades to the swimming pools at the site, which is located on Broadway in Sandown.
