As you may be aware the proposal by Ashford Borough Council to keep the Stour Centre closed and bring forward the capital investment project was agreed at the Council meeting on Thursday 16th July 2020. We therefore confirm that ALT will not be re-opening the Stour Centre from 25th July 2020, as now permitted by the government.  

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our staff and customers for the support over the years; you have helped make the  Stour Centre such a success.

We are in the process of contacting all of our customers regarding outstanding refunds that are due. If you would like to discuss your direct debit please email

The fitness provision is being extended at the Julie Rose Stadium and we are currently preparing to transform the indoor running Shute into a gym.  This is a significant project and we are working very hard to complete it as soon as possible.  We will of course keep everyone informed.

ALT will continue to operate the JRS until 1st September 2020 when Freedom Leisure will then take over the management.
