Excitement is building ahead of the opening of a £3.5m leisure centre which it is hoped will become a new community hub for Wymondham.

The Wymondham Leisure Centre will be officially opened on Monday following a year-long transformation.

South Norfolk Council deputy leader Councillor Martin Wilby said he was delighted with how the centre was shaping up.

He said: 'Our customers will be able to enjoy a first-class leisure facility and community hub offering a fantastic choice of activities that will appeal to people of all ages and abilities.'

New sections of the centre include a reception area with cafe, a gym with 100 machines spread over two floors, studios and a function room.

There is also a state-of-the art suite of rooms for spa treatment and physical rehab which includes a sauna, steam room, spray-tan room and a high-powered 'monsoon shower' unit.

The development also includes a modernisation of the centre's swimming pool, which was unveiled in October last year.

South Norfolk Council leader Councillor John Fuller and the leisure centre's oldest member, 96-year-old Eric Cousins, will cut a ribbon at the centre at 11am.

The venue's new areas will be open to the public from 6.30am.
