Your chance to name new leisure centrePublished Wednesday, 17th February 2021
Residents of Hartlepool are being offered a chance to name the town’s new multi-million pound leisure centre.
Hartlepool Borough Council, which is building the flagship development at The Waterfront, adjacent to the town’s marina, has launched a competition for local residents.
It is inviting them to submit suggested names and the winning entry will be picked by a judging panel.
Councillor Shane Moore, Leader of the Council, said: “The day the leisure centre opens will be a proud moment for the town and a significant milestone in its history.
“As this is a development for the people of Hartlepool, it is only right that they should be given the chance to come up with its name.
“The competition is a fantastic opportunity for a person or a group of people to stamp their mark on the development and play a key role in shaping what is one of the biggest investments in the town in recent times.”
