A LEISURE centre in Leamington is offering a warm welcome this winter.
Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre will offer a warm, safe place for the local community during the colder months.
The centre – run by Everyone Active – is open as a Welcoming Space on weekdays between 8am and 3pm until March 31.
People will be able to access a warm space with free wifi and free use of the toilets and showers.
With the national cost of living crisis becoming ever more prevalent, the initiative is encouraging community sites to support those struggling with the expense of heating their homes.
The centres will be open to everyone, free of charge, so individuals do not have to be an Everyone Active member to take advantage of the Welcoming Space.
Gareth Wagg, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We know this winter could be difficult for many people, so we want everyone to know they have a safe and warm place to visit.
“We have a community feel at our leisure centres and we want to invite people to come down and make the most of the space, not only to stay warm, but to socialise with friends or use as a co-working area.
“It’s a free-of-charge offer to just come in and spend time with us, safe and warm.”
Warwick District Council’s leisure spokesperson Coun Judy Falp added: “This is a fantastic initiative by Everyone Active, opening up its facilities to the local community during this difficult time for many residents. This welcoming space will provide a warm place to work and use the centre’s wifi to keep in touch with family and friends this winter.”
