The public are invited to the Black Lion leisure centre this weekend, to view the plans for its redevelopment as Medway Park. The changes to the centre in Mill Road, Gillingham, aim to provide top-class sporting facilities, which would be accessible to the whole community. These include: - a new purpose-built 12-court sports hall; - a new gymnastics centre alongside the existing Jumpers Rebound Centre; - a new eight-lane athletics track; - a dedicated judo dojo; - refurbished pools and changing rooms; - weights, strength and conditioning facilities; - 100-station health and fitness facility; - a new sports science and sports therapy suite. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions during the exhibition, which will run from Friday 6 until Sunday 8 June, between 10 am and 4pm. Call 01634 283700, or visit www.medway.gov.uk/55680 for more information.
