Ripple Garden to be unveiled

It is not just the Leisure Centre that is recieving some much needed TLC, the area that lies directly across from the reception area along the riverside is also being given a new lease of life. The aptly named Ripple Garden is being revamped by Garden Designer, writer and agronomist, Penny Meadmore thanks to BBC Radio Lincolnshire. The Ripple Garden uses the

contours of an existing slope to create a series of terraced beds which flow in and out like waves on a beach. Planting will be set within mown grass and can be viewed from the bridge above. A ‘Ripple Bench’ will provide seating for people to further enjoy the setting. The garden will be unveiled alongside the opening on BBC Radio Lincs, Melvyn Priors show on the 15th October.

Did you Know?

Approximately 400,000 ltrs (90,000gls) of water will fill the pool. About 136,000ltrs (30,000 gls) of water pumped through the filters every hour. Gym floor space is now 170m2 compared to the previous 128m2 Dance Studio is now 84m2 compared to the previous 61.5m2 Woodland Splash is 84m2 compared to the planned 38.5m2

Refurbishment steps up a gear

Last week marked a major step for the refurbishment as water began to be filtered into the pool. Over 400,000 ltrs of water has been pumped into the newly

tiled pool base, taking over a week to fill. The Woodland Splash will have water filtered into it from the main pool later on this week.

The Sleaford Leisure Centre Info Shop, Bristol Arcade, Sleaford is open; 10am to 3pm Mon-Fri and 9.30am to 12.30pm on a Saturday.
