Meridian Leisure centre announces new Sauna and Steam Room
Meridian Leisure Centre is currently undergoing a £65,000 transformation, which will see a complete redesign of the current sauna and steam room. The investment follows a £300,000 refurbishment to the two-floor fitness suite that was completed in May this year.
The latest investment will see new flooring, tiling, benches and paintwork to the current sauna and steam room facility – helping to improve the ability to retain heat, providing a positive efficiency saving to the venue. Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture operates the facility and is carrying out the works in association with East Lindsey District Council.
Current members and users have already been informed of the update to the Sauna and Steam room and of the minor changes to the changing facilities in the health suite whilst the refurbishments occur.
The works, which commenced on Monday, 14th November and have started to see the removal of the current equipment, flooring, and the units stripped back to their shell, with drainage and sewage work taking place. In addition to the Sauna and Steam Room improvements, the health suite shower area will also undergo new vinyl flooring, tiling around the shower area, and new painted walls and doors to improve customer experience.
Due to the logistics of the work happening, at times, there may be limited access to the men’s health suite changing rooms; this will be kept to a minimum, and male customers will be able to use the Sports Hall changing rooms and poolside changing rooms as usual. Work is expected to take several weeks, and the new Sauna and Steam room are expected to open before Christmas.
The Trust’s Executive Director, Aeneas Richardson, is delighted by these latest improvements, which are welcomed after the last few years.
“We are aware of the impact the sauna and steam room have had on our members and users, especially this year with continual issues out of our control. It is great that we can finally now confirm the improvements to the health suite area can go ahead,” said Aeneas Richardson.
“Whilst we appreciate and apologise for the slight disruption to our members and users, we know that the results will be well worth it,” he added.
Councillor Graham Marsh, Deputy Leader of the Council and Portfolio Holder for Partnerships, said: “We are thrilled that Magna Vitae is investing in refurbishments to its facilities that are used by people from Louth and across the district. Having facilities such as a gym, sauna and spa rooms helps support the health and wellbeing of residents which is vitally important.”
