Dimensions Leisure Centre reaches 30-year milestone

Published: Tuesday, 11th July 2023

Dimensions Leisure Centre is celebrating turning 30 on Wednesday, July 12.

To celebrate the milestone the centre hosted its first ever tropical Hawaiian Luau (Saturday, July 8) with over 600 people attending. Families who visited got to enjoy a Tiki bar, bouncy castle, fairground games and were entered into a prize draw.

Two staff members, Jenny Lincoln-Evans and Roger Moore have both worked at the Burslem leisure centre since it opened. The long serving members of staff have fond memories of the opening day 30 years ago.

Jenny Lincoln-Evans who is a receptionist at the centre said: “Coming to Dimensions every day is like visiting a big family, the centre been a large part of my family's life as well as my daughter works here. There is always a shoulder to cry on and someone to make you laugh and give you a hug. Thank you to the Dimensions team and members for the last 30 years, here's to another 30.”

The Stoke-on-Trent City Council run leisure centre is now home to a modern gym, which offers a wide range of classes including spinning classes, yoga and aqua fit just to name a few and expert help from experienced gym instructors. It also has a fantasy fun pool, a play tower for children to play on, outdoor 3G football pitches, a licensed café bar, and a bespoke sensory room.

Councillor Jane Ashworth, leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, said: “Dimensions Leisure Centre is an integral place in our community and has remained popular. Over the past 30 years families have visited and residents have got to enjoy using the facilities, I know many people will have childhood memories visiting the centre.

“Whether you want to make a splash under the water fountains, ride the rapids, shoot down the dragon slide or simply relax in the hot spas or hydro pool, we'll always ensure you have a fun and value-for-money visit. If you haven’t visited the centre yet, please do make the visit over the summer.”
