More problems at St Albans new Wesminster Lodge
PROBLEMS continued for the city’s new leisure centre this week as phone lines went down just weeks after it opened.
A frustrated reader complained that he had expected St Albans council to use the old Westminster Lodge number for the new leisure centre.
Instead the number rang until it rang out with no cut-in message to say the number had been changed.
And when he had located the new Westminster Lodge number, he found the line was out of order.
He added: “I did get through on one occasion but no-one answered the phone.”

Richard Shwe, the council’s head of community services, confirmed there were currently technical issues with the telephone system for the new Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre.
He went on: “The leisure centre operator, Everyone Active, is working with its telephone service provider to resolve this issue. If people are experiencing difficulties in getting through to the leisure centre, Everyone Active is asking them to email email@example.com.
