Dartford’s Fairfield leisure centre officially reopened on Saturday, just in time for the half term break.

Following a £12million investment, the new swimming pool and gym facilities was opened by the Mayor of Dartford, Ian Armitt and the leader of Dartford council, Jeremy Kite.

Among the centre’s new-look facilities is a 95 station gym along with dance and exercise studios, a sports hall and a new pool complete with poolside sauna.

Mr Kite said: “We knew the residents of Dartford were very excited about the opening of the new Fairfield and it was great to see the centre so busy this weekend.

“Since the former centre’s closure in 2014, we’ve been hard at work with our partners Wilmott Dixon and Places for People Leisure to create a new leisure facility which is modern, well-designed and ready for a whole new generation of visitors to enjoy.

“We love the smart new feel to the place and hope they do too.”
