Leisure centres and entertainment venue openings update

Leisure centres

Following government guidance, we are exploring the safe reopening of our leisure centres.

It is anticipated four leisure centres will open in the coming weeks starting with Glass Mill, Forest Hill Pools and Ladywell Arena in October and Wavelengths in November. Reopening dates will be announced early October.

Downham Health & Leisure centre reopened on Monday 27 July and the swimming pool opened on 10 August. We will carefully assess customer demand and how this centre operates within the government's restrictions. For updates please visit the 1Life website.

We have decided to take the opportunity to secure a new partner, which will see the phased reopening of other leisure centres and swimming pools starting this autumn.
