Wiltshire Council has confirmed that it intends to begin a phased reopening of its leisure services from 3 August, following recent confirmation from the Government that leisure centres can reopen with social distancing measures in place.
From 3 August, Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre, Salisbury, and Springfield Community Campus, Corsham, will open their doors to the public for the first time since 20 March, with customers able to initially access the fitness suite, swimming pool and group exercise classes.
Then, from 10 August, the council plans to reopen The Vale Community Campus in Pewsey which is great new for our local community. The Nadder Centre, Tisbury, and Devizes Leisure Centre will also open at the same time.
To manage the number of people at each centre at any given time, customers must book in advance, and follow social distancing and increased hygiene measures.
The opening schedule has been devised to ensure that both Wiltshire Council and Places Leisure can manage resources effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic, while keeping customers and staff as safe as possible at each centre.
Facilities such as cafes and creches will remain closed at this stage, and due to the restrictions on group swimming it is not possible to continue with under 16s free swimming at present.
Centres will initially reopen with revised opening hours. Find out more here
