Marlow’s leisure complex gets £2m facelift
A £2m refurbishment of Court Garden Leisure Complex in Marlow has been completed by Buckinghamshire Council and operators Places Leisure.
The investment includes a new roof to the swimming pool and main building, refurbished swim changing areas, new sports hall floor, boilers and plant replacement alongside redecoration work across parts of the complex, including main reception.
And last week (Friday 25 September) Beaconsfield MP Joy Morrissey joined Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Sports and Leisure, Clive Harriss and Chairman of Buckinghamshire Council and local Marlow councillor, Richard Scott, as part of a socially distanced tour of the new facilities with general manager, Nicola Allen.
After the visit, Joy Morrissey MP said: “I was really impressed with what’s been achieved at Court Garden. From the bright and airy reception area through to the new roof over the pool and flooring in the sports hall. I’d like to pass on my congratulations to all involved,” she added.
Cabinet Member, Clive Harriss commented: “These are important improvements that will hopefully encourage more people from Marlow and surrounding areas to take part in physical activity opportunities. Staff at the complex have also put in place all necessary Covid-19 social distancing and hygiene requirements, so those visiting can do so safety and with confidence.
“Although some services have reluctantly had to remain suspended, activities are up and running, so I would encourage local people to see how their fitness and wellbeing could benefit from these improved facilities. During the latest national spike in the pandemic it is more important than ever to stay safe and stay fit to help your body to defend against the virus.”
