Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council transforms leisure offering.

PRESS RELEASE

Working for the benefit of children, young people, residents, visitors and local businesses alike; – Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council is seeking to transform its leisure offering, with fast paced and exciting changes, commencing from June 2021.

New ideas include opportunities at the much-loved Jubilee Lake, to have survival parties for children, forest schools for local primary schools, boating for families, crazy golf and jobs for young people in the form of Park Rangers.

These outline proposals come just 3 weeks after new Town Clerk Stephen Nash joined the council, who arrived with keen desire to build on Councillors appetite to transform leisure facilities and work to a more commercial way.

To help fund these plans the council has already successfully obtained some of the governments Kick Start Scheme to fund paid youth employment; charging minimal costs to participate in leisure activities; accessing grants; and using ANPR cameras to charge in council car parks for non-residents when parking over a certain length of time.

With a desire to sustainably offer more enrichment and opportunities, Councillors warmly welcomed these new proposals at Thursday Night’s Amenities meeting, unanimously voting in favour of plans to be moved forwards at a pace.

Chair of the Amenities Committee Cllr Sue Hughes said;
‘After a dark 12 months we now have an exciting opportunity to sustainably offer so much more to everyone, which will improve quality of life, business opportunity, active lifestyles and enrichment’.

Town Clerk, Mr Steve Nash said;
‘This is a great opportunity for the council and for local residents, the projects will not only generate income for the council but will also provide some local employment opportunities for young people.’

For further information please contact Steve Nash, Town Clerk on stephen@royalwoottonbassett.gov.uk or 01793 850222 during office hours.
