Save KLV

A public meeting to discuss how to save KLV (Kettering Conference Centre) has been organised by Labour Councillor Keli Watts. She wants everyone who uses the facilities - gym, sports hall, courts, theatre - to come along. Kettering Arts Centre at St Andrew’s Church Thursday 18 May 2023, 7pm


The announced closure of the Kettering Conference Centre has left us all reeling. Kettering Leisure Village was delivered by a Labour administration, which also backed the centre’s operations with £1m to support running costs and deliver a range of community and sports services. The Village has changed over the years with the transformation into the Conference Centre, but Arena Sports, the Lighthouse Theatre and the Balance Health Club are very popular and much needed by our residents. The catastrophic collapse of these services and amenities is a direct result of the failure of the Government to support leisure services’ energy bills across the country. NNC is a creature of this government - not least because it was created when the Tory-run Northants County Council collapsed. But what foresight did NNC show? We would be interested to have a detailed narrative of what lead members and MPs did to support this facility before rather than after the operations were terminated. Cllr Anne Lee, Cllr Keli Watts, Cllr Maggie Don, Cllr Clark Mitchell, Cllr Bev Wright
