Ahead of the intended return of parkrun on 5th June, your Co Event Directors were lucky enough to get a tour of the new leisure centre in Ponte park this afternoon ahead of it opening to the public this coming Monday.
We were both blown away by it. It really is stunning. Jo loved the pool side of it, especially the 10 lane 25m pool whilst I fell hook line and sinker for the fabulous spin studio.
[email protected] Park, as it will be known, will be a great addition to our parkrun mornings.
Some of you will just use it for the cafe and toilets, whilst many of you will take advantage of membership to take a post parkrun swim or gym session. Your core team will be in the cafe after each event to process the results with a cuppa, so we may see some more of you post run in the future.

You can find out more about this Council run facility here - https://www.wakefield.gov.uk/sport-health-and-leisure/leisure-centres-and-facilities/aspire-park?

Cllr Michael Graham

Today I joined Cllr Lynn Masterman in #Ossett to look at the Town Hall and discuss final plans ahead of refurbishment works starting in January. Significant investment in this The Grade ll listed building will see:

📚 a brand new library on the first floor
👥 a lift installed linking the ground and first floor
🛠 remediation and repair works throughout the building
🚪 the entrance at Kingsway/Dale St brought up to standard

Ossett Town Hall is one of the town’s most prestigious landmarks and it’s a place that holds many happy memories for many people.

This refurbishment will enhance the building and make the Town Hall more attractive for events and shows, as well as preserve it for future generations 🏫

Myself and Cllr Masterman have asked that residents are provided with updates on a regular basis as works progress.
