Chance to shape the future of Lochalsh Leisure Centre

The popular leisure centre is 25 years old

Locals will get the chance to help shape the future of the Lochalsh Leisure Centre at an open meeting in Kyle next Tuesday (13th February).

For 25 years the Leisure Centre has been a great asset to the community – and it is now welcoming its third generation of people who have learned to swim in the pool. Over the years the facilities have extended to include an aerobic studio and weights room.

The staff of the centre are ably managed by Chris Mackinnon who is supported by a Board of Trustees drawn from the local community.

Over the last few weeks there have been a number of changes to the board with Paul Wood being appointed as Chairman and Sandra Coghill, Fionnuala Stark, Charlie Smith and Bill Mitchell now looking to work closely with Chris Mackinnon, the Centre Manager, and his team to take the centre forward.

The new board say they very aware that the centre is there to serve the community and want to engage more closely with those who already use the centre, and encourage others who don’t regularly attend, to contribute to ideas on how its services could be developed.

Anyone interested in participating to a forum – at which everyone will have the opportunity to put forward ideas and comments on the centre, what it currently provides and how it might be made to better reflect the needs of the community – is invited to attend.

The forum will be held on Tuesday 13th February at 7.30pm in the Lochalsh Hotel, Kyle of Lochalsh.
