Spiceball bounces back

old_spiceballThe old Spiceball Sports Centre may now just be a distant memory, but parts of it will live on and are set to provide years of service to other community facilities in Cherwell.
Whilst works are progressing well on the old site, parts of the now demolished building will get a new lease of life around the district.
In addition to normal building salvage methods, the internal doors, wooden flooring and sanitary ware are all being used again - they've been given away for free to town and parish councils, and village halls in Cherwell.  Woodgreen Leisure Centre has also benefitted with the refurbishment of wooden floors to the main hall and meeting rooms.
Councillor George Reynolds, Cherwell District Council's portfolio holder for environment, recreation and health, said: "The old Spiceball Sports Centre may have been superseded by the new leisure centre, but it's good to know some parts of the old building will have a new lease of life. Rather than sending re-usable items to landfill, we've given it away to communities, helping to enhance local facilities and demonstrating good recycling too."
