​​In September 2022 Friends of Wadebridge Leisure Centre will take over the operation of the local sports and leisure centre from GLL. Following Covid and a long period of uncertainty for the future of the centre we are keen to make the space feel reenergised and ready to welcome existing, returning and brand new users to the centre and to support our community to enjoy the benefits of sports and fitness.

We are a not for profit organisation and will sink or swim dependent on our ability to show real and significant change to the look, feel and offerings at the centre. 

We are taking over at a time of a massive energy crisis and cost of living crisis and the small, short term subsidy agreed with the council will mainly be absorbed by rising utilities and other running expenses.

Our longterm aim is ambitious and requires significant research and planning to maximise the impact of capital investment in heating, ventilation and water treatment plant that will ensure the future sustainability of the centre.

In the short term we welcome any donations, no matter how big or small, to help us add some spark back in to the centre so we can attract and retain staff and members from day one.

Thanks to a significant number of donations and successful grant applications so far, we have now secured over £706,000 in funding towards our target. In addition we have submitted grant applications totalling an additional £200,000. If all of these come good then we are only £30,000 from our target to help us unlock the maximum Community Ownership Funding of £935,000 match funding to help us make Wadebridge Sports and Leisure Centre a sustainable facility that the people of Wadebridge, Padstow and surrounding parishes can enjoy for years to come.
