Gordon Brittas is the manager of the Whitbury-Newtown Leisure Centre. Despite his good intentions, everything seems to go wrong when he's around, despite the best efforts of the center staff and his long-suffering wife, Helen.
Understandably, the real Centre used for filming did not have a boiler room, exterior gas storage, a petting zoo or an Anderson Shelter! Despite being mentioned in the show, Ringwood Recreation Centre also does not have outdoor Tennis Courts, a Football/Cricket/Rugby pitch or any outdoor facilities. These facilities belong to Ringwood School, which is adjacent to the centre and can be seen prominently in the background to the right of the reception exterior as well as through the window behind Gordon's desk. In exchange for use of the facilities the School pupils use the Centre for many P.E lessons and can regularly be seen in the background of earlier episodes, which were filmed during term time.
I'd rather be somewhere decent with clean clothes and a stiff drink.
