Kenilworth's MP and mayor were given a site tour and update on the progress being made in the multi-million-pound redevelopment of the town's leisure facilities.

Lead contractors Kier gave a briefing at the Castle Farm site to Sir Jeremy Wright and Cllr Sam Louden-Cooke before showing them round the steel frame and roof currently under construction.

This was followed by a visit to Abbey Fields, where contractor AR Demolition is at the final stages of the ground preparation work to enable the construction of two new swimming pools.

The group were also given a detailed briefing on the work being done alongside Historic England and Archaeology Warwickshire following the medieval discoveries on site.

MP for Kenilworth and Southam Sir Jeremy Wright said: "The redeveloped leisure centres at Castle Farm and Abbey Fields, along with the new secondary school are key elements in supporting the future expansion of Kenilworth.

"It's therefore wonderful to see the long-held plans to provide our town with some of the best sports facilities in the country, now visibly taking shape."

Leader of Warwick District Council, Cllr Andrew Day added: "Sunshine and crisp days have brought with them visible signs of our recovery, which are especially evident in Kenilworth.

"With the steel frame in place and roof now under construction, it was timely to host Sir Jeremy and other community partners for a visit to these multi-million-pound redevelopments to meet our project team, contractors, Everyone Active and representatives from the local scouts and guides."

"These wonderful new buildings along with the new secondary school which opens this September, offer Kenilworth first class facilities to enable the community to flourish as it grows in the years ahead."

Keep an eye out for our detailed update on the works this weekend.
