Blackburn Leisure Centre to remain closed today following sad news

Published Thursday 22 December 2022 at 10:16

Following the tragic passing of a long-serving member of staff at Blackburn Leisure Centre last night, the venue will remain closed today (Thursday, December 22) as a mark of respect.

The centre was closed last night following the sudden collapse of one of our well-loved lifeguards who sadly passed away.

Colleagues at BwD Leisure are naturally devastated. We are closing the centre as mark of respect and to allow colleagues some time to come to terms with the loss.

To all our members and customers we respectfully ask for your patience at this sad time. Our sincerest condolences are with family, friends and colleagues.

Customers and other people affected have been contacted directly and the centre will re-open at 6am tomorrow (Friday, December 23).

Thank you for your understanding at this incredibly sad time.
