Investment and improvements

Cossington Street Sports Centre

Cossington Street Sports Centre has recently re-opened significant investment and improvements. The swimming pool area, toilets, changing rooms and main reception have all been refurbished. We received £75,000 towards these improvements from Sport England as a part of the Swim Pilot project. Cossington Street has a large six lane, 33 metre swimming pool, a small fitness suite and a three-court sports hall.
