September 7, 2013


 (Sydney, N.S.) A new wellness centre in Membertou will help families and visitors to the area maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.

Gordie Gosse, NDP MLA for Cape Breton Nova, welcomed the news of a provincial government investment to help build the Membertou Sports and Wellness Centre earlier today, September 7.

“This facility will be the cornerstone of a growing, healthy community,” said Gosse.

“Membertou is attracting more visitors from on and off the island every day, this centre will add to that success.”

The $3 million investment from the Department of Health and Wellness will assist with the capital costs of constructing the centre which is expected to include an arena, indoor walking track, and community fitness centre.
