  • Refurbished and retiled swimming pool with efficient replacement Pool Plant 
  • New dance and exercise Studio
  • Large Fitness Suite extension
  • Multifunction room
  • Extensive redecoration
  • Refurbished Wet change
  • Accessible changing facilities
  • Accessible pool facilities
  • New lift access to first floor

The ownership of the building will be formally transferred from Wiltshire Council to Cricklade Town Council following the completion of the works. The refurbished centre will continue to be run by Cricklade & District Community Association.

The newly refurbished centre will open its doors to the public when government restrictions allow.

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, Wiltshire Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: "This will truly be a centre for the entire community and we can't wait to see it open its doors.

"We have a great track record of providing and revitalising high quality leisure facilities for residents to make the most of, and this is no exception.

"When restrictions are eased and we can all look forward to a more normal way of life, Cricklade Leisure Centre will continue to bring people together and be a facility for the local area to be proud of."

Cricklade Town Council Chairman, Mark Clarke, added "It is really pleasing to have reached this key milestone, particularly bearing in mind the difficult restrictions under which the contractors have had to work. I know that the residents are very keen to use the new facility and so we all hope that the wait will not be too long now. The future of Leisure in Cricklade is a positive one"

CDCA Director, said "We're delighted to be in a position to open the newly refurbished centre when current restrictions are lifted. It will be a great boost for our loyal members and we thank them and our staff for the support that has been shown to us over recent times. The refurbishment ensures the centre, one of Cricklade's greatest assets, is part of our community for generations to come."
