Sport England’s Inspired Facilities
Thanks to a very generous grant from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund the Centre was able to replace it’s hot water and heating system in the autumn of 2015. The Centre was still relying on the original 30 year old boiler so replacement of this was very necessary. Hopefully users will experience a more pleasant environment, we will soon see reduced fuel bills and the prospect of taking a shower at the Centre will become more appealing.
Burwell Carnival is enjoyed by thousands of people each year and £1000s of pounds are raised for local charities and good causes. Burwell Sports Centre is very grateful for the donation from the carnival each year and looks forward to helping with, and participating in this great village event for years to come.
