Local charitable trust launches a virtual walk-through of Covid-ready facilities 

The area’s leading provider of sports and leisure services has launched a virtual walk-through of its facilities to demonstrate what customers can expect when doors open.

Charitable trust, Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, has produced a video which shows how it will keep customers and staff safe with a step-by-step guide from pre-booking a timeslot, entering the building and enjoying an activity.

The move comes as the trust finalises its Covid-19 measures to prepare its facilities in anticipation of a phased re-opening in line with the Scottish Government’s Covid-19 Route Map. The charitable trust has already shared with customers details of what users can expect including limited numbers in centres at any one time, social distancing, increased hygiene measure and one-way systems.

The trust is keen to engage with customers regarding its cautious and planned approach to a phased re-opening and is asking those keen to get back to its facilities to show support while the organisation reinstates its programmes and centres.

Newly-appointed chief executive, Emma Walker, said: “I think customers will find the video very useful and will answer a lot of questions they may have about how their centres will operate under the new Covid-19 measures.

“And although we are keen to welcome customers back, we are urging patience. As a charitable trust, we face significant challenges in getting the organisation fully operational as we manage the significant level of disruption the lockdown has had on the organisation. We are also very mindful of customers and staff who will need to continue to self-isolate. And, we are committed to continuing our live-streamed fitness sessions, which have received fantastic feedback, to support those who will not be able to access centres.”
