MILTON Keynes residents are being asked to play their part in helping to shape how services at popular sport and leisure facilities will be provided in future.

Under new tender proposals, Medbourne Community Sports Pavilion, Oakgrove Leisure Centre, Tattenhoe Sports Pavilion, Woughton Leisure Centre and Woughton on the Green Sports Pavilion would be included in the package.

The council has lined up a series of meetings for the public to learn more about the proposals Question and answer sessions will be held at Woughton on the Green Sports Pavilion on Tuesday, May 22 at 6pm.

Woughton Leisure Centre on Wednesday, May 23 at 6pm.

Medbourne Community Sports Pavilion on Tuesday, June 12 at 6pm.

Oakgrove Leisure Centre on Wednesday, June 13 at 6pm and Tattenhoe Sports Pavilion on Thursday, June 14 at 6pm.

Nearly all, 98 per cent, of the council’s leisure and community facilities are run on a partnership basis working with people from the voluntary, public and the commercial sectors.

Paul Sanders, MKC’s Assistant Director Community Facilities said: “We are very proud of our sporting and leisure facilities in Milton Keynes – but we couldn’t make them work as well as we do without strong partnership working with the local community that uses them.

“We would encourage as many people as possible to attend these public meetings.”
