Final preparations are being made ahead of next week’s reopening of South Kesteven District Council’s leisure centres.

The centres in Grantham, Stamford, Bourne and Deepings are run by LeisureSK Ltd, a Council-owned company which has overseen staff training and the introduction of measures to ensure the centres are Covid-secure.

All four centres have also undergone a deep clean before reopening their swimming pools and gyms from Monday, April 12th.

Precautions put in place to guard against Covid-19 means numbers will be limited and all activities must be booked. Sports halls and cafés will remain closed but it is anticipated that from 17 May indoor sport and group exercise can resume and from 21 June there is scheduled to be no legal limit on social contact and the leisure centres will fully reopen.

A spokesperson for LeisureSK said: “Our teams are very much looking forward to reopening our centres and welcoming back the local community. Residents have been waiting a long time for our gyms and swimming pools to reopen and the wait is almost over.

“Ensuring staff and customers remain safe continues to be our number one priority and we have carefully considered the measures needed to ensure we adhere to the Government’s Covid-19 guidance.”

SKDC secured a £330,000 grant from Sport England’s National Recovery Fund to help towards the costs of reopening the centres after lockdown.
