Local leisure centres reopen today
Hart Leisure Centre and Frogmore Leisure Centre, which are managed by sports and leisure operator Everyone Active in partnership with Hart District Council, will reopen their doors today (Friday 31 July) for gym and group exercise activities.
The swimming pool facilities at Hart Leisure Centre will be open from Saturday 1 August.
The Government update on 9 July confirmed leisure centres are now safe to reopen facilities, with strict operational measures in place. Everyone Active procedures will ensure social distancing is managed throughout the centres and regular cleaning is maintained. Full detail of the operator’s measures can be found here.
Luke Charlton, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to reopening the centres and welcoming back the local community. Giving people the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre will go a long way to maintaining the good health of local communities.
“Ensuring our colleagues and customers remain safe is our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measurements to ensure we adhere to the guidance.”
Councillor James Radley, Deputy Leader of Hart District Council and Cabinet member for Leisure Centres, added: “The Council is delighted that residents can now enjoy our leisure centres once again. We know customers have missed taking part in their regular exercise so it is great news that the doors have opened today. This follows additional funding from the Council to help EA manage our leisure centres through this period of unprecedented challenges.
“We are sure that all users will act responsibly so that other customers and staff can have a safe and positive experience.”
