Howe Bridge LC

In September 2015 Howe Bridge Leisure Centre opened its brand new health and fitness suite – part of an ongoing £2.9m transformation at the WLCT-operated site. Members could take advantage of a new Technogym-equipped 80-station gym, sauna and steam room, indoor cycling studio, group exercise studio and new changing rooms. As part of the first phase of improvements, the centre’s reception area was also modernised and a new catering offer, The Subs Bench, opened for business.

The latest development followed the previous opening of the 3G FIFA 2 star pitch. Next to come is a range of innovative leisure products including adventure climbing, an indoor extreme skate park and adventure play facilities. Wigan Council invested £2.4m into the project, while WLCT secured an additional £500,000 from the National Lottery’s Sport England Improvement Fund. The full scheme is due to be completed by November 2015 and is being renovated by Alliance Leisure in partnership with international construction services company ISG.

“Over the next couple of months a range of facilities for children and young people will be installed, meaning that by the time the full scheme is complete there will be something for all the family on site.“Howe Bridge is set to become a real hub of activity for people of all ages looking to keep active while having fun.”
