Following the Government announcement yesterday about the new measures being put in place to manage the Coronavirus outbreak, the Council has taken the difficult decision to close all leisure facilities from Wednesday 18 March 2020 until further notice.  We will continue to closely monitor and act on the latest Government advice.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support.  We hope to be back with you soon.

Further updates can be found here, on our Facebook pages and on the Council’s The Shuttle website
