Fitness fanatics flock to take a sneak preview at saved Kilburn sports centre
Charteris Sports Centre, which was axed by Brent Council, is set to open its doors again
Hundreds of fitness enthusiasts flocked to Kilburn to take a sneak preview at a sports centre which has been saved from closure.
Charteris Sports Centre, which was shut down 18 months ago due to council funding cuts, is set to open its doors again and residents were given the chance to sample the facilities for themselves.
Lloyd Fothergill, a member of the Save Charteris Group, which campaigned for the centre, in Charteris Road, to stay open said the day was a success.
He told the Times: “It was very good, everyone was very impressed and were enthusiastic to find out what classes are going to be on offer.

The centre is set to open in November again following refurbishments by new owners, a private schools group needing extra gym facilities.
