"I am absolutely thrilled at the level of quality throughout our brand new centre. Everyone who has played a part in its design and build has done a fantastic job.

"I'm sure many happy hours will be spent at the centre by residents of Andover and further afield and I'm very grateful to Places Leisure, Pellikaan Construction and architects, Roberts Limbrick for delivering a fabulous facility on time.

"We pledged to deliver a state-of-the-art facility and I'm so pleased that we have done that right in the town centre."

"The quality of the equipment at our new leisure centre is second to none. We are very excited for people to come and see it and I'm sure they are likely to make the most of our new facilities.

"We have listened to residents and included studios and multi-purpose areas to try and suit all needs across the two floors.

"Of course there's also the brand new climbing area featuring the Clip n Climb and other apparatus for those of all ages to enjoy. I look forward to seeing them in use!"

The centre will be managed by Places Leisure in association with the council offering a range of programmes and activities.
