“It is excellent to see progress being made on Axholme North Sports Centre in Crowle. This is a major investment in health and sports and will benefit people of all ages across the Isle of Axholme.
“We asked residents what they wanted and they said they wanted a sports facility in Crowle. The new sports centre will provide top class facilities and secure the council’s commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of its residents.”
