WSLC is a charity and an Industrial Provident Society. Trustees are members of the local community and have worked tirelessly to achieve the aim to manage the pool and gym from January 2015 thus saving this well-used public pool and gym from closure.
In 2013, Wem Town Council took up WSLC’s offer to manage the Centre and so began the Partnership by placing the day to day running into the hands of this local trust securing this piece of the town’s ‘family silver’ for the future.
With encouragement from the Town Council, the ‘Friends’ group set out a vision for Wem Pool, investigated what needed to be repaired, replaced and upgraded and wrote a viable business plan under the name of ‘Wem Swimming and Lifestyle Centre’.
Our logo is designed by a young Wemian designer and proudly worn on the Staff’s locally produced new sports kit.
Following monthly partnership meetings and an extensive public consultation through market research, opportunities for the community include:
* Membership of only £18.00 per month for unlimited use of pool and gym (optional)
* Sessions available for local schools and businesses
* Improved swimming programme with new sessions
* Early Morning swim session (on a trial basis)
* Swimming lessons for children and adults
* Life guard training for children and adults
* Swimfit: personal training for pool and gym
* Training courses
The Wem Town Council, WSLC staff and Trustees are keen to ‘get it right’. We are working to ensure a successful handover and transition into the first year of business.
