Charitable trust confirms date for third phase of re-opening programme  


We are confirming the date for the third phase of our re-opening programme as we kick-start our facilities following the lockdown.

We have been working hard behind the scenes to get its facilities Covid-ready with eight of our facilities across Fife already welcoming customers.

Now, we are set to open doors on Monday, October 12, to Duloch Leisure Centre, Dunfermline Cupar Leisure Centre, Bowhill Swimming Pool and Waterstone Crook Leisure Centre, Newport-on-Tay.

The move comes as we launch our own app to make it easier for customers to book activities and timeslots as part of the new Covid health and safety measures, in addition to helping users keep track of their health and wellbeing goals in or out of our leisure centres.

We’ve seen a positive reaction from customers following the re-opening of our centres, with customer surveys showing that 99 per cent of those who have visited facilities are satisfied that on arrival there are adequate social distancing and health and safety measures in place, 97 per cent are happy with the protocols for their chosen activity and 100 per cent report that staff are helpful and well-informed about the new Covid measures. 

Emma Walker, chief executive of Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We’ve had a fantastic reaction from customers following the re-opening of our facilities – feedback has shown that users are confident in the health and safety measures that are in place and that guidelines are easy to follow.

 “I’d encourage customers to download the trust’s new app, it’s a really simple and convenient way to book time in the gym, pool or space in one of our fitness classes – the app also supports customers to monitor their personal goals and get the maximum health and wellbeing benefits from physical activity.”
