A FACELIFT is in store for Huntingdon Leisure Centre to provide a new health suite, a soft-play area for children and an "interactive zone" with electronic games.

The work is expected to start next year and will include a refit to the changing rooms and provide a new heath suite and relaxation area, massage bed, holistic therapies and an extension to the Impression Fitness Suite.

The Sunset Café and Bar will also get an update.

Councillor Doug Dew, portfolio holder for leisure at Huntingdonshire District Council, said part of the plan was to combat obesity in children.
