Serco Leisure is taking over the management of a health club previously operated by David Lloyd.

In February, David Lloyd notified members at Lockmeadow club in Maidstone that it would be closing the club at the end of May.

Serco Leisure then entered into talks with Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) regarding the possibility of keeping the club open.

On May 16th, it was announced that Serco Leisure and MLT would become the new operators at the club, which features a swimming pool, 200-station gym and sauna/steam room. The facility will continue to operate as a private members’ club.

Simon Lane, Serco’s MD for Leisure and Micromobility said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for Serco Leisure in the region. We are the trusted operator of two facilities in the town already, which will have played in our favour when discussions about the future management of this club were taking place. We now look ahead to an exciting opening date for the newly named Lockmeadow Health Club.”

Commenting on the new operator, MBC Cabinet Member for Leisure and Arts – Cllr Claudine Russell said: “After extensive marketing and interest from other providers, Serco Leisure’s offer in terms of both financial reward and service provided, put them as the front runners to operate this private members’ club.

“We know how much our residents have valued this facility in the town centre for many years and are delighted that it the facility will remain open as a place to relax, work out and socialise for the people of Maidstone.”

Serco Leisure in partnership with the Trust and on behalf of MBC operate the Mote Park Outdoor Adventure and Maidstone Leisure Centre.
