Trust presses on with council leisure centre buy-out (From The Northern Echo)

AN organisation hoping to save four North-East leisure centres threatened with closure has reaffirmed its position after scrutinising the accounts.

Spectrum Leisure and Management (Slam) said it can now draw up a “viable” business plan after Durham County Council opened the books.

The council is considering closing six leisure centres to save £1.3m a year, part of £400m cuts its needs to make over the next four years because of a reduction in central Government funding.

The community development trust hopes to take over the operation of leisure centres in Ferryhill, Sherburn, Coxhoe and Pity Me.

Deerness in Ushaw Moor and Glenholme in Crook are also facing closure.
