As part of the contract, all existing staff at the centres will be kept on by Everyone Active.
Cllr Peter Whittaker, Bromsgrove District Council’s portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “In a highly competitive process for the opportunity to run our exciting new leisure centre and swimming pools, Everyone Active came out on top.
“This council believes great, accessible opportunities for physical activity are vital for the community. We hope that through our new centre and this partnership with Everyone Active we’re providing these for even more people, on a sound and sustainable basis, for many years to come.”
David Bibby, Managing Director of Everyone Active said: “Our new contract in Bromsgrove adds to our growing presence in the West Midlands area, with nearby contracts in Stratford and Warwick. As our fifth contract win this year, we are pleased to be working in partnership with the Council to deliver improved leisure facilities across the district. We are confident our expansion into Bromsgrove will add tremendous value to the local community helping them to lead a more active lifestyle.”
