We are delighted with the news that the Government has brought forward the re-opening for leisure centres, pools and gyms into Phase 3. Having originally planned to open in August, in line with the Government’s original plan, and then late July, we are working hard to accelerate the delivery and installation of safety and hygiene equipment and signage to ensure we can open with the highest standards of health and safety for our customers and staff.
We are also awaiting clarification from government on social distancing guidelines and maximum occupancy, in so far as they apply to leisure centres, in order to determine what reductions on normal capacity will apply to our facilities. Until this is clarified, we are unable to determine a possible opening date. But rest assured that we are working hard to re-open as soon as is feasible!
We have fast tracked all re-opening protocols including:
- Speeding up the delivery and installation of health & safety supplies and signage
- New socially distanced layouts
- Health and safety training for staff, and
- Re-heating of swimming pools and management of chlorine chemical levels.
We will notify members as soon as we can to confirm the re-opening date, when we welcome you back safely in July. We will communicate a further update on Friday when we hope to have the Government clarifications.
We would like to thank all of our members for continuing to support us during this time, and to all of our staff for their commitment over recent weeks towards re-opening safely.
Looking forward to welcoming you all back soon. #HEALTHIERHAPPIER
