New group cycling studio and refurbished café open at Lammas

Sutton in Ashfield’s Lammas Leisure Centre has welcomed even more improvements as part of its ongoing transformation.

As part of work carried out by Ashfield District Council in partnership with award-winning operator Everyone Active, a new group cycling studio and refurbished café are now open to the public.

The group cycling studio hosts live and virtual classes, with no fewer than 23 Keiser bikes available for customers to use. Features include a dynamic lighting system and large leaderboard at the front of the class to allow participants to track progress.

A month-long project to refurbish the café and reception has also been carried out.

The café features a bigger servery area and a serving hatch has been added so that refreshments can be accessed from the ice arena when it reopens in December.

New furniture such as sofas, tables and chairs have been added and the reception has been reconfigured to include a technology area where customers can use laptops and tablets, with charging available.

Work is also progressing on the centre’s new TAGactive arena which will provide something completely different for people to enjoy. Improvements to the ice rink are also due to be completed in the next few weeks.

Cllr Rachel Madden, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing, said:

“The investments that we’ve brought to our leisure offer here in Ashfield mean our residents have access to state-of-the-art facilities across the entire District. 
“The improvements at Lammas look fantastic and there’s even more to come. The TAGactive Arena is coming together nicely and we know how much Ashfield residents are looking forward to the refurbished ice rink reopening.
“Along with the ongoing transformation at Hucknall, including the new additional swimming pool, and the new centre coming to Kirkby, these improvements prove our commitment to providing the highest quality leisure provision possible.”

Lorenzo Clark, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said:

“We are so excited to have officially opened the new cycle studio and given the community access to this superb facility.
“It is another innovative development at Lammas and has already gone down a storm with customers of all ages.
“Visually, it’s very striking and people love the leaderboard function, which gives classes an extra dimension.
“It’s great to see the café and reception looking so smart as well, and the centre’s transformation is really gathering a head of steam.”
