“All activities including swimming lessons are also suspended until further notice.

“This also extends to community based Active Sefton sessions and the Easter Be Active Programme.

“We are fully aware of the incredible value our leisure centres and wider activities hold for the health and wellbeing of our communities.

“However due to recent government guidance, these temporary arrangements are crucial to help in the next phase of the government’s plan to tackle the outbreak.

“It is still very important to remain as active as possible during this time. We will do our absolute best to provide helpful hints, tips and guidance for residents via our social media channels and recommend that residents remain active at a social distance utilising the outdoors where possible.

“All direct debit payments will automatically be suspended until the leisure centres reopen and as such there is no need to contact us to arrange this.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and we thank you for your understanding at this time.”
