The design work to transform Calne Leisure Centre into Calne Community Campus is now complete and a suitable tender for the main contractor is now being sought.
More than £3 million will be invested in this project to improve the facilities and ensure the long-term sustainability of the centre.
Construction work is due to commence this summer.
The project will deliver a new fitness suite, and the new gym will be twice the size of the existing gym. The wet change facilities will also be entirely reconfigured, delivering a modern village change area.
You can see designs and full details by visiting their website.

From Last Years High Sheriff
Many of you will know that last year as High Sheriff I focused on raising awareness of domestic abuse on victims & their families in Wiltshire. With the help of many CB folk I also raised over £25,000 for a number of charities who support these victims. I am also Chair of Swindon Women's Aid which provides refuge accommodation to 22 women & their families at any 1 time, as well as delivering a domestic abuse support service across the town.
Last Friday we opened our first charity shop "Survivor@SWA" in The Parade next door to Debenhams. We had a really brilliant first day of trading with lots of people through our doors.
