One of the country’s most decorated swimmers – a Commonwealth and European Gold medallist – officially opened a new Goodmayes leisure centre and sports complex.
James Wilby joined councillors and Mayor of Redbridge Debbie Kaur-Thiara for the grand opening of Mayfield Leisure Centre, in Kinfauns Road, on Tuesday, November 27.
Goodmayes Councillor Kam Rai said: “This is a fantastic asset to now have in my ward and I’m sure the centre will not only improve residents’ health but bring communities together.”
Facilities include a six-lane 25-metre pool, a multi-purpose studio, a 40-station hi-tech gym and “changing village”.
The council has invested £4million in the centre, with £750,000 provided through the National Lottery’s Sport England Strategic Facilities Fund.
The swimming pool and gym will be open to the public from 7am to 9.30pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 5.30pm at weekends.
