ERITH LEISURE CENTRE – FUNCTION ROOM BOOKING
In response to recent posts on the site please note the following statement;
On 6 July, Erith Leisure Centre received a booking from a company describing itself as a security firm, to hire a function room on 8th July. Representatives of this company signed the required booking form to comply with the leisure centre’s terms and conditions of hire that include an anti-racist charter. On the day of the booking, a number of people used the function room but concealed their branded tops when in view of any leisure centre staff or members of the public.
The Centre Management Team have since learnt that the booking was made by a group representing an extremist political party that would not have been permitted to access the site had the true nature of the group been declared.
Parkwood Community Leisure works to the highest standards of integrity and ethical propriety. We are committed to ensuring that customers who take part in sporting activities at our leisure centres do so without fear of racial harassment or anti social behaviour. Any conflict or inconsistency with its anti-racist policy results in the withdrawal of use of our facilities.
