Following the move into Step 4 of the Governments roadmap on Monday 19th July, we would like to reassure you that safety will remain our priority as we work with our colleagues in the Blackburn with Darwen Public Health team to ease the restrictions that are currently in place.
Over the coming weeks our leisure team will be working hard to get us back to normal as soon as possibly whilst keeping our staff and customers safe.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support as we re-open.
Your safety is still our priority
