Leisure centre creches in Nottinghamshire could shut

Three Nottinghamshire leisure centres could lose their creche facilities because of low demand.

Gedling Borough Council, which runs the creches at Arnold, Redhill and Carlton, said high costs are also a problem.

The borough council is consulting with unions and creche staff and will make a final decision in early November.

There has been a fall in demand with less than 3,000 visits to the three sites over the past year. The creches cost £52,000 a year to run.

The council said it needs to cut its budget but added it is "not taking the closure lightly".
