Somerdale Pavilion, a new sports and entertainment centre run by award-winning leisure charity Aquaterra, is now open.

Its launch is an important milestone in the wider scheme to regenerate the former Cadbury’s site at Keynsham.

Aquaterra is a not-for-profit organisation focused on delivering programmes and activities that have a positive impact on the health of the communities within which it works.

The charity delivers a range of programmes to inspire people of ages to get involved in sport and lead an active lifestyle.

Penny Shrubb, operations director at Somerdale Pavilion, comments: “We really want this centre to play a pivotal role at the heart of the community here and the open day is a perfect opportunity for people to come and find out more about what’s on offer.

“We’re planning a really fun-packed day and want to invite everyone in the area to join us in celebrating the launch of this new social hub for Keynsham.”

“At Aquaterra, we want to make sure that everyone – regardless of their age, background or abilities – has the opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing through sport, entertainment and leisure.

“Our aim is to create a focus for the wider community at Somerdale Pavilion and we are keen to talk to local people and community groups in the area to make sure the activities on offer meet their needs.”
