Quite like the facilities at this leisure centre but whilst in the Gyn on the running machines I couldnt help notice how many people park here (includig the disabled bays) and go shopping in the Galleries. Car park needs better supervision

Yes , but it's a busy car park, sometimes loads of space other times you have to wait for a space, weekends are always busy and packed, asda/galleries main carpark is about 3-4 minutes walk as an option
