The sports centre has sustained damage to the roof. In high winds, part of the water proofing (flashing) was blown off. Until the roof is inspected by qualified personnel, and subsequent essential repairs carried out, we cannot be sure that the facility is safe. Since the safety of sports centre users and staff is the principal concern, the decision has been taken to temporarily close the centre. The Town Council and Everyone Active are working hard to get the centre reopened as soon as possible.
The carriageway resurfacing works will be resuming next Wednesday 17th July starting from the Sports Centre through to west of Osier Way.
These works will be under 2 way lights with temporary road closures and diversions in operation to Playsteds Lane and Osier Way. These works should be completed within 3-4 days.
Roadworks and Buses
Stagecoach buses will now be running on their normal routes for the coming week, until 23rd June.
From Monday 24th June to Friday 5th July, they will again be running a diversion for the No. 4 bus. Due to work in Back Lane north of the cricket field, the buses will utilise Eastgate in both directions. Please see the attached diversion map. Please note the position of the temporary stops, marked in blue ‘TS’.
