Here's an update from Actif's Senior Sport and Leisure Manager, Carl Daniels
What’s been going on in Actif?
First and foremost, I have to start by saying we’re missing you and very much looking forward to increasing services to help you be more active!
Lockdown happened very suddenly and we hope you feel we have made decisions and used our communication platforms effectively in your best interests. Whilst we have furloughed the majority of staff to reduce financial strain locally and nationally, we have continued with some services to support management and planning tasks, and to continue to support the community and our customers most dependent on physical activity guidance – those referred due to medical conditions.
As you will have seen, lockdown measures are lifting gradually, and we are currently seeking to reopen services that we are allowed to and are readying to open services yet to be given the go-ahead. Rest assured that we will have the safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers at the heart of our decisions, timescales and in the changes we make to how we operate moving forward; you have to feel comfortable and confident to be active with us, and achieving that is our aim.
Please keep up-to-date via our online platforms, but download our ‘Actif Sport and Leisure’ App, where we will post notifications and news as it becomes available.
Until we meet again, stay safe and stay active.
Well, what a year it has been. I doubt any of us would have predicted such a turbulent 2020, and here at Actif we are acutely aware of the way in which the pandemic has affected so many people’s health and wellbeing. Through multiple service closures, we have been limited in the way in which we could help you stay fit and healthy, in body and mind, but that’s never stopped us caring about you or doing what we can.

The First Minister has confirmed that Wales will move into alert level 4 restrictions as of midnight on Saturday, 19th December 2020 until 18 January 2021. These restrictions will apply to all of Wales.
What does this mean to Actif Leisure Centres?
We’re proud of the way volunteers from within our communities have been kind in their community during this pandemic. We’ll be saying #ThanksToYou , our grassroots heroes on 15 December alongside Sport Wales and National Lottery.
This week (14 December), the National Lottery Dedicated To…campaign celebrates our grassroots sporting heroes for their community spirit during these last few, tough months.
