Following its £1.7m refurbishment, Abergavenny leisure centre has opened its doors to the public - however the swimming pool will be closed for the rest of this month.

The refurbishment of Abergavenny Leisure Centre, which re-opened on January 4 2022, has created a wellness hub over the first floor to create modern leisure facilities for the local community, helping to increase participation in regular physical activity.

The new facilities include:

Extended Fitness Suite

Dedicated Group Exercise Studio

Spin Studio

New Fitness Changing Facilities

Ground Floor Coffee Vending Offer

In a statement from Monmouthshire County Council it said due to unforeseen circumstances, the swimming pool at Abergavenny Leisure Centre will be closed during January.

Investigatory works are being carried out and updates will be available through MonLife’s website and social media channels soon.

This development follows the successful completion of the project at Monmouth leisure centre, which was completed in 2019.

Elected members of Monmouthshire County Council have stated how committed they are to investing in and developing leisure facilities across the county to support the health and wellbeing of citizens.

The continued investment into Monmouthshire’s leisure facilities will have a significant impact on wellbeing for not only now, but also for future generations.

Councillor Lisa Dymock, MCC’s cabinet member for community wellbeing and social justice, said: “It is extremely fulfilling to see the doors open on this exciting project. We are committed to investing in and developing leisure facilities across our county, which has such a positive effect for not only our current residents, but future generations too.

’’Seeing the incredible facilities shows just how hard MonLife has worked. Thank you to everyone for your continued hard work, being a fantastic way to start 2022.”

To celebrate its opening, MonLife Active is offering a membership deal, where members could get a 12-month membership for the price of nine, where more information can be found at: Be Extraordinary - Monlif
