Leisure­cen­tre con­cern­sraised

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

An­gry leisure cen­tre users have been left hot and both­ered for a sec­ond time in months fol­low­ing the clo­sure of the fa­cil­ity’s steam room.

Users have hit out be­cause Larkhall Leisure Cen­tre’s steam room has been shut for seven months.

One el­derly user said:“it took them months to re­pair and then they get it up and run­ning and now it’s closed again.

“Many pen­sion­ers, like my­self, pay for the yearly mem­ber­ship and we cer­tainly haven’t had ac­cess all year round. Fix­ing things at the leisure cen­tre doesn’t seen to be a pri­or­ity, leav­ing many of us won­der­ing about the fu­ture of the fa­cil­ity.”

A spokesper­son for South La­nark­shire Leisure and Cul­ture said: “The steam room at Larkhall Leisure Cen­tre has been out of ac­tion since May due to the steam gen­er­a­tors not work­ing.

“As it has not been pos­si­ble to source suitable re­place­ment parts we have had to look at re­design­ing the ex­ist­ing steam room.

“This has now been agreed and a spe­cial­ist sup­plier has been ap­pointed to carry out the work. A suitable date will be ar­ranged for the works to be car­ried out.”
