A NEW image is being launched at three Halton leisure centres following a take over.

Kingsway Leisure Centre, Brookvale Recreation Centre and Runcorn Swimming Pool have a new owner.

The centres have been run for Halton Council by DC Leisure which is now changing its name to Places for People.

Francis Edwards, contract manager, says: “It’s an exciting time for our leisure centres and our customers. Our staff will be wearing new uniform and customers will notice new logos on leaflets and posters around the centres, but ultimately we will still deliver the same level of excellent service and varied programme of exercise classes.

“We will continue to be a community-minded facility bursting with passion and enthusiasm to get local people more physically active.”

Places for People Leisure currently partners 30 local authorities, managing more than 100 leisure centres across England.
