Major £2.4million investment announced at Antrim Forum

Antrim Forum’s Fitness Suite is set to receive its biggest make-over to date with a major £2.4million investment, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has revealed.

Plans are now underway to completely transform the existing fitness suite into a state-of-the-art fitness hub plus two new fitness studios. The poolside village changing toilets will also be completely modernised.

The local Council has funded this multi-million pound project under its capital investment scheme and says it is "proud to offer our residents and visitors one of the best, most well equipped fitness facilities in the UK and Ireland".

Work in Fitness Suite and Studios will get underway this Autumn. MORE members can expect to walk into a state-of-the-art fitness space with the latest innovative equipment.

The space will be completely transformed and made significantly bigger. A new purpose built Group Cycle and Fitness Studio will also be part of this investment.

Work in the Village Changing areas will get underway in Winter 2022. Up to £100,000 investment has been earmarked to improve the poolside toilets.
