Elizabeth Archer, United Kingdom8 years ago Comments: The leisure centre will be a major loss to the community, people visit the centre that do not live local as it is the only one in the area.
Mark Carter, United Kingdom8 years ago Comments: We are moving into Wyke, Gillingham and my daughters love to swim. This proposed closure is very sad, especially as the swim club of Gillingham is so successful and was part of the reason for choosing the area.
Karen Johnson, United Kingdom8 years ago Comments: To close Gillingham leisure centre is madness beyond belief! The town has rapidly expanded over the past few years, and will continue to do so. The leisure centre provides a very imporant venue for people to meet, to exercise (a major govenment target centres around people's health, fitness and weight management!) and keep fit. How is this being allowed to happen I regularly take my 2 year old swimming there. With the closure, does this mean that I will have to travel half an hour to Gillingham or Yeovil because the sports facilities in this area will be so abominably appaling
