Our Darlington health club has come of age!

We are marking its 21st birthday with a party for about 80 staff and members at the town’s Bannatyne Hotel on April 22.

The health club was the company’s seventh in England and was built on the site of a former bus depot on Haughton Road with a capacity for 3,000 members.

Since then, Bannatyne Group has grown to operate 70 health clubs, 47 spas and four hotels.

In total £3 million was spent on the Darlington health club, which included its 20-metre swimming pool and fully equipped cardiovascular gym.

In the last 21 years, money has continued to be invested in the club to ensure it has the most up-to-date high-tech equipment and first-class facilities for its members. This has included the building of an extension to house its fabulous spa and treatment rooms.

General manager Lucy Readshaw said: “I can hardly believe the club is celebrating this milestone anniversary. It doesn’t seem that long since it first opened.

“The club is as popular as ever and some of our members have been with us since the very beginning.

“Staff and members are looking forward to celebrating the occasion. Here’s to the next 21 years!”
