14th July 2020
Following the latest Government Guidance published on 9th July 2020 concerning the reopening of indoor leisure facilities the College has taken the decision not to re-open on 25th July 2020 and we are awaiting further guidance from The Football Association with regards to the safety of indoor football.
The decision is based on several factors but the overriding decision is based on ensuring safety of staff and customers. Due to the nature of the main activity of 5 a side football, it is felt that an indoor, contact sport cannot be conducted in a format that will “enable customers, staff and volunteers to maintain social distancing before, during and after participation.” (Gov.uk Guidance 9/7/20)
Without 5 a side football taking place, it is not financially viable to open the leisure centre for gym use and the occasional use for outdoor football. A further update will be provided when further guidance from the FA is published.
18th March 2020
Following the latest Government advice with regard to social distancing, it is with regret that the leisure centre will close from Wednesday 18/3/20 until further notice.
