Teething problems with Fenland leisure centre’s swipe card entry system resolved after complaints
TEETHING problems with a new swipe card entry system at one of the council’s leisure centres have been resolved - but apologies were still expressed for inconvenience caused.
Councillor Jan French told last Thursday’s full meeting of Fenland District Council she received numerous complaints about the new system at the George Campbell Leisure Centre in March.
Councillor Steve Garratt, portfolio holder for leisure, said there were teething problems but these were now resolved.
He also said: “We are finding that some people are forgetting to swipe their card and go straight through and are still queuing at reception because that what they’re used to doing.
“If we have caused any inconvenience, I apologise to users.”
