General Election - changes to some leisure centre opening times

Changes to opening times at four leisure centres because of the General Election have been confirmed.

At the Lasswade Centre, the main hall and fitness studios will be closed for counting purposes during the General Election on Wednesday 6, Thursday 7 and Friday 8 May 2015.

(The main hall will also be closed on Tuesday 5 May to allow protective flooring to be laid and communications cables to be set up.)

Tonezone will be closed all day on Thursday 7 May dates and there will be no fitness classes running on the above dates, or any other types of classes that take place in the dance studios.

The pool will be open for swimming and swimming lessons will still be on, however customers must report to reception and then leave the building again and enter the pool area via the doors just outside the changing village.

On Thursday 7 May the pool will close for public swimming from 3.30-5pm for swimming lessons and re-open for public swimming from 5pm until 6.45. Last entry to the pool on election day will be 6pm.

The library, meanwhile, will close an hour early at 7pm.

Gorebridge, Mayfield and Danderhall leisure centres will be used as polling stations on Thursday 7 May for the General Election and will, therefore, will be closed. All activities for that day will be cancelled.
