Sinn Féin Councillors last night secured an in house working model for the new multi million pound Leisure Centre it the South Lake in Craigavon

Sinn Féin Councillor Catherine Nelson said:

"We have been engaging extensively with the unions, leisure staff, Council officers and other political parties.

"Despite DUP and UUP support to out source the centre at committee level a few weeks ago we are delighted that after much negotiation the in-house working model enjoyed full party support at the full Council meeting.

"This was a vote of confidence in our extremely capable and talented leisure staff.

"We look forward to working with them to ensure the delivery of the new high quality Leisure facility our ratepayers deserve."
