Save Churchill Sport Centre

Exciting New Future for Churchill Sports Centre?
Aerobics, Swimming, Studio cycling, Zumba, Pilates, Canoeing, Tennis, Judo, Netball, Basketball, Squash, Aqua therapy, Badminton…
Churchill Sports Centre is currently under threat of permanent closure. A working group of ex-sports centre members, regular users, instructors, local residents and councillors think there is, but they need to know if residents value the centre and want it to thrive. If they do support it, then what are the activities that they want to be available there?
Keeping fit with regular exercise is vital for physical and mental wellbeing. The working group, ‘Mendip Villages Fitness’, urges everyone to take just 5 minutes to complete their on-line/paper survey to discover what types of activities would be most popular.
Do people want a fully equipped gym that also offers judo, Zumba and yoga classes? What about tennis courts and netball? Are parents having difficulty finding swimming lessons and holiday clubs for their children or a canoe club for older children? Should we consider mother and baby classes as well as gentle exercise for the ‘less young’, a coffee lounge or physiotherapy? Does Aqua therapy appeal?
With your help and support, and simply knowing your views, Mendip Villages Fitness working in collaboration with North Somerset Council, the ten Parish Councils in the surrounding area and Churchill Academy, will find the right fitness solution for our communities.
All views are needed - friends, neighbours, children, adults, students, parish councils, organisations, companies that would like to offer fitness to their members – in fact EVERYONE!
