As part of Volair’s drive to enhance leisure facilities in Knowsley, an investment of £750,000 will see improvements to the gym and football facilities in Kirkby.
Over the coming weeks, Kirkby Leisure Centre’s gym will be upgraded to include a new functional area including a sled track, larger free weight area, new cardiovascular and resistance equipment, along with a new gym floor class timetable. And not only that, but a new 3G football pitch is also coming to Kirkby! Work has started on the full-size, all-weather, floodlit pitch at Kirkby Leisure Centre.
Volair was established as a not-for-profit company to manage the council’s leisure centres, pools, gyms and sports pitches – all formerly known as Active Knowsley – in April 2016.
Delivering these services through this new company allowed the council to ensure they were protected from future Government cuts which might otherwise have made them unsustainable.
