Aylesham welfare opening hours to change

20 February, 2019

Next week (from Monday 25 February) sees a change in opening hours at the Aylesham Welfare & Leisure Centre in Spinney Lane.

The gym will be open from 5pm-10pm Mondays to Fridays as well as on Saturdays and Sundays.

The welfare bar will be open on Fridays between 6pm and 10pm, Saturdays 12pm to 10pm and Sundays 12pm to 6pm.

Aylesham & Snowdown Welfare Trust is working hard to ensure a smooth handover from Freedom Leisure to a new operator for the end of April. Currently, the trust is having talks with three potential operators, said welfare trust secretary Derek Garrity.

He added: “Anybody who wishes to book a 3G pitch at the welfare should contact the duty manager – all evening booking slots will be available.

“Football and rugby teams wanting to book pitches for the 2019/2020 season should book with the duty manager as well – we are confident the centre will honour all bookings.”

Freedom has agreed that tutors can continue to deliver exercise classes during the week between 5pm and 10pm. Please contact individual tutors for more details.

The duty manager can be contacted via 01304 840661 or
