A closing date has been announced for the current leisure centre in Broadbridge Heath.

After more than a year’s worth of works a new £12m sports and recreation centre - named The Bridge - will be opening in the village next month.

Horsham District Council - which owns the site - has confirmed the new leisure centre will be opening at 9am on October 20 with the current centre shutting on Wednesday October 17.

The closing of the current centre will also see the loss of all but 30m of the indoor athletics facility known as The Tube.

The proposals faced huge backlash from users and athletic stars such as Jade Lally who used the ‘invaluable’ facility to train throughout the year.
