The ground has officially been broken to mark the beginning of work on a £2.35 million extension and refurbishment at a Sudbury leisure facility.

Councillors, Abbeycroft Leisure trustees and staff from Beardwell Construction gathered for a ground-breaking ceremony at Kingfisher Leisure Centre to herald the start of the renovation project.

The scheme will include the addition of a new fitness studio and community room, a first-floor gym with 100 stations and new changing facilities, as well as refurbished wet changing and toilet facilities.

The centre will remain open while the work takes place, which is expected to be completed between February and March of next year.

Chris Fry, assistant director for environment and commercial partnerships at Babergh District Council, said: “We want to ensure our residents are able to remain happy, healthy and active and we can’t wait to see the new facilities once they’re finished.

“This work is a positive step towards us investing in, and improving, our leisure facilities in the district to achieve the aims set out in our leisure, sport and physical activity strategy.”
