Leisure Centres feeling fit after £1.2m cash injection

Published Thursday, 19 March 2015

Cllr Rohini Simbodyal paid a special visit to Southbury Leisure Centre this week (16 March), to see for herself the start of its transformation after a £1.2m cash injection from Enfield Council and its leisure partner Fusion Lifestyle, which will see leisure centres modernised and improved.


Both Edmonton and Southbury Leisure Centres are undergoing full refurbishment and enlargement of the gym areas to incorporate a new warm up and free weights area. The very latest interactive fitness equipment, including cardiovascular and weights machines are also to be installed in both sites.  Edmonton will see acoustic walls installed in the indoor cycle studio to combat noise and Southbury will see a fully refurbished indoor cycle studio and all new static cycles.

Cllr Rohini Simbodyal, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Sport, Youth and Public Health said “This £1.2m cash injection will see further improvements in Enfield Council’s leisure centres including new equipment, more space, and lots of new state of the art equipment to make exercise easier and fun.

“This investment in Enfield’s leisure facilities has come from the surplus made from our partnership with Fusion Lifestyle, which we are reinvesting to improve services.

“Our last public health report showed people are living longer than before and in better health, so we want to encourage this trend by getting as many people as possible to sign up for their local Fusion gym, as there is something for everyone there.

“There are classes, activities and facilities for everyone to enjoy, so why not find out more about joining your local leisure centre?”

Nigel Court, Fusion Lifestyles Divisional Business Manager said “These improvements to the Enfield facilities are a welcome addition to already very busy and successful facilities.

“The local community will again be getting the very best in fitness facilities around and ones to rival many private health clubs in the area.”
