Labour believes that everyone in our Borough, regardless of their income or background, should enjoy access to excellent sport and leisure facilities. Labour is committed to addressing health inequalities in our local communities.
Labour will build new leisure centres in both Bedworth and Nuneaton, with new swimming pools, gyms and recreation facilities for local people.
In Bedworth, Labour will create an outdoor amphitheatre and new skate park in the Miners’ Welfare Park. The Park will also be extended to include Coalpit Fields through to Hawkesbury Village, and will be linked by cycle and pedestrian routes. There will be investment in sports facilities at Heatley Pavilion, Keresley Community Centre and at Bulkington Pavilion.
In Nuneaton, the Riversley Park band stand will be upgraded, and there will be an outdoor entertainment area for local groups and young people. Labour will enhance the planned community sporting hub at the new Top Farm School, which will include a 100-station gym, 2 dance studios and an all-weather pitch. Whittleford Park will be become the Borough’s third destination park.
