    Staff at a council-run leisure centre have been made redundant after it was closed to make way for a multi-million pound makeover.

    A £5m redevelopment is currently under way at Splashes in Rainham.

    Whilst it remains closed, Medway Council officers have said keeping on some staff members would not be financially viable.

    Councillors approved funding to give the centre in Bloors Lane a revamp during a full council meeting in July.

    The redevelopment will see a new cafe installed at the centre, as well as enlargement of the changing facilities and upgrades to the swimming pool flume.

    The newly revamped premises are due to re-open in 2022.
