Mayor of Dudley launches new Inspired Facility

The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Alan Finch, took to the water in September, celebrating the launch of a new National Lottery-funded Inspired Facility at Dudley Water Sports Centre.

The centre received £50,000 from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities funding for its new wing, which comprises changing rooms, showers and a training facility, and celebrated with a free open weekend on 7-8 September.

Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, the centre hosts a number of water sports activities for the wider community including rowing sessions, which are being delivered by British Rowing.

The sessions form part of the Water Ways for Well-being Project – a partnership between British Rowing and Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council to provide more indoor and on-the-water rowing opportunities for Dudley and the surrounding population.
