Figures for leisure facility usage rates have seen significant growth over the last financial year, particularly owing to the popularity of the new Flitwick Leisure Centre. Numbers at Tiddenfoot and Dunstable also showed notable increases. Over the 2016/17 financial year, all sites showed an increase in attendances, most notably by 106% at Flitwick Leisure Centre and by 19.6% at Tiddenfoot.
Both Tiddenfoot and Flitwick Leisure Centres continued to show strong growth in usage from April to June 2017, with usage increasing by 33% and 21% respectively when compared to the same time last year. July to September this year saw a decrease in the recorded usage figures at Flitwick due to remedial work being required on the entrance barrier (now completed). While a new membership system was being introduced at Tiddenfoot, figures for attendance reduced.
