Information and guidance following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions

Overview of leisure centres

Following the latest announcement from the Government confirming that restrictions are easing, the following information highlights safety protocols and how we plan to operate going forward. 

Although many rules have been removed, a few basic safety measures remain in place.

We are delighted to be able to increase provisions and access, and finally return to some normality; however we equally want to take a sensible approach to resuming services and ensure that our staff and customers continue to feel safe when visiting us and have an enjoyable experience.

Covid-19 symptoms
