Update on Leisure Centres

Everybody Sport and Recreation (ESAR) has provided an update regarding their leisure facilities following government announcements on 11/05/2020.

ESAR has stated:

“All Everybody Sport and Recreation leisure facilities to remain closed until further notice.

“Following recent guidance from central government and Public Health England we have, together with Cheshire East Council, made the decision to keep our leisure facilities and services closed until July at the earliest.

“It is our priority to put the health and wellbeing of our customers and staff first above anything else.

“We will continue to review the situation and the guidance presented to us and we are working closely with partners to understand the impact of Covid-19 on the leisure sector. Earlier re-opening steps may include some of our services, for example outdoor sport, but this will only happen once we can ensure it is safe to do so for our customers and staff, in line with public health guidelines. We will continue to review this in the next few weeks.

“Our retained teams of staff are currently adapting and redesigning our operating practices, including facility layouts to incorporate social distancing which will ensure we are ready to serve our customers again when the time is right.”
