Leisure Centres across Central Bedfordshire during 2018/19 had a total usage of 1,307,103. While the usage figures reported appear to show a downturn in attendances, this is a result of Dunstable Leisure Centre being closed for refurbishment and therefore not being included in results. Central Bedfordshire Council is committed to increasing leisure facility usage across its multiple sites and aims to improve on the same period during the previous financial year.
Overall the leisure centres have been performing well in participation across the facilities, although, during this most recent quarter (January to March 2019) some of the centre usage has gone down. Flitwick is slightly below previous usage and Tiddenfoot leisure centre has also seen a decline in participation. Stevenage Leisure Limited are currently investigating the reasons for the decline to ensure measures can be put into place to address any short falls.
