A concerned member of the public has contacted Barnsley Council to say that we are open during lockdown and that they have seen lots of people coming and going at the centre. We would just like to reassure everyone that we are only open for allowable activities. The Centre is open for NHS Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation and Disability Sports, both of which have been exempted from lockdown restrictions as they provide an essential service for health. These activities have been subject to risk assessments and everything is in place to make them as safe as possible.
So, if you see people entering the Leisure Centre wearing sports clothing, it is because they are attending allowable activities. We have taken Corona Virus restrictions very seriously since the beginning of 2020, and have done everything we can to ensure that we keep the people attending the centre as safe as we possibly can.
We are still CLOSED for Classes, Gym and Skating until further notice.
