Fife Sports and Leisure Trust to remain closed

In keeping with the Scottish Government’s announcement yesterday (January 4, 2021) regarding protocols to be followed in relation to the spread and containment of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), all Fife Sports and Leisure Trust centres will remain closed – this includes its outdoor facilities.

We will put the restriction to facilities and programmes with immediate effect. The measure will be in place until Scottish Government advice states that it is appropriate for sports and leisure facilities to resume.

Our new online fitness timetable which was widely accessed during the last lockdown and won praise locally, nationally and internationally for its content, will be available from Monday, January 11 and we will continue our outreach programme to participants of its self-funded health and wellbeing programme which supports local people living with long-term health conditions. Click here for more information and/or to support these programmes

Emma Walker, chief executive for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We are very disappointed to be in a situation where we once again have to close all our facilities –we know from our customer surveys that local communities had enjoyed being able to get back and be physically active, safely, in our centres.

“The availability of community leisure facilities are crucial for the health and wellbeing of people of all ages and abilities, and, as we have been operating with the highest levels of health and safety measures in place, we are confident that we can open our facilities as soon as possible when allowed. 

“I would encourage people to visit the trust’s website for details of our free, online fitness sessions which are available from our highly-qualified instructors – we know that these sessions were extremely popular during the first lockdown and they allow people to benefit from the health and mental wellbeing benefits of getting active.”
