Cutting the Sod for the Axholme North Leisure Centre
The first sod was cut for the development of the Axholme North Leisure Centre being built on the site of The Axholme Academy in Crowle.
The ceremony was performed by Crowle councillors John Briggs and Julie Read and also in attendance were Baroness Redfearn, MP Andrew Percy, Cllr Carl Sherwood, representatives from Fairclough the appointed contractors and Joe Sellars, Principal at the academy.
Joe Sellars said 'it is great to mark the start of construction of the leisure centre. It will bring fantastic new facilities to the North of the Isle including a 25 metre pool, fitness and dance/exercise studio, a floodlit artificial grass pitch, new tennis courts, an upgraded sports hall and new changing facilities. Building the centre on the school site will maximise use by people of all ages in a true community facility.'
