New firm takes over running of leisure centre

Have your say

A new operator has been chosen to run a Sheffield sports centre which, a year ago, was at risk of closure.

Sheffield City Council has selected Places for People Leisure as the preferred bidder to operate Wisewood Sports Centre.

The firm operates more than 100 leisure centres across the country and has been UK Leisure Operator of the Year for the past three years.

The centre will be handed over to PfP on April 1 and council employees, who have kept their jobs, will be transferred to the new firm.
