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.
Following Welsh Government’s announcement to introduce a two-week ‘firebreak’ lockdown in response to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Wales, ALL Actif Leisure centres & outdoors sports facilities will close from 4pm* on Friday 23 October, reopening on Monday 9 November
