We will reopen the doors from 1 August 2020

We will reopen the doors from 1 August 2020. The news comes after the facilities were forced to close for almost four months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Government update on 9 July confirmed leisure centres are now safe to reopen facilities, with strict operational measures in place.

The key health and safety systems and procedures will be strictly in place.

They involve
• Social distancing is managed throughout the centres
• Regular cleaning and sanitising of hands is maintained
• Mask is worn when you come and leave
• Sign the attendance book
• Entrance from the rear only
• Car park at the rear
• All equipment that you use and touch to be cleaned and sanitised
• Only disable toilet may be used. You should clean it after use for other person to use.
• Bring all your gear (water bottle, towel, equipment) in a bag and take it away at the end
• Keep the bi-fold doors open to allow fresh air to circulate
• £3.50 fee for each to be paid in advance

Bharat Lukka (GHU Trustee), said:

“We’re very much looking forward to reopening the centres and welcoming back our local community. After being closed for nearly four months, this latest announcement from Government is the news we have been eagerly awaiting. Giving people the opportunity to resume Badminton, Yoga and Volleyball and exercise in Apple Tree Centre Dhamecha Hall will go a long way to maintaining the good health of local communities.

“Ensuring we all remain safe is our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measurements to ensure we adhere to the guidance. We will be contacting all members directly over the coming days regarding the centres reopening. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and thanking them for their patience.”
