Leisure centres in West Lindsey are set to reopen from Monday, April 12, after receiving the Government’s go ahead for Step 2 of the roadmap.

The Government confirmed on Monday, April 5 that leisure centres would be safe to reopen with strict operational measures in place. This is the latest stage of the four-step roadmap and follows the reopening of several outdoor activities at Everyone Active sites on Monday, March 29.

The Government’s roadmap includes detail on which facilities can reopen within each step, meaning some may not be available in the first instance - Details about which facilities can reopen in each step and the latest guidance.

Everyone Active has committed to keeping its customers safe and active, ensuring it will meet and exceed Government guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19 with the Everyone Active Pledge - Full detail on the operator’s pledge and safety measures.

While its 200 leisure centres across the country have been closed, Everyone Active has provided a comprehensive package of online workouts for people to use, along with livestreamed classes across its social media pages.

Kerry O’Neill, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to reopening our centres and welcoming back the local community.

“After being closed for three months, the latest step in the Government’s roadmap is a positive move forward for the leisure industry and gives people of all ages the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre.

“Ensuring our colleagues and customers remain safe continues to be our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measures to ensure we adhere to the guidance.

“We will be contacting all customers directly over the coming days regarding the reopening of centres. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and thank them for their patience.”

Anna Grieve, business development officer at West Lindsey District Council said: “The council is looking forward to working with Everyone Active to ensure all current members and future users have an enjoyable experience within our centres.

“As the roadmap opens up, we are looking forward to getting out into the community to help those not able to attend the centres to enjoy activity and exercise.”
