Council & Leisure Trust working towards safe re-opening of sports centres

Following the Welsh Government's latest update on the reopening of indoor leisure facilities from August 10th, the Aneurin Leisure Trust, which manages sports centres on behalf of Blaenau Gwent Council, is working to make all facilities as safe as possible for customers and staff. The centres will be re-opening on a phased basis with more details available in the coming days.

Councillor Joanne Collins, the Council’s Executive Member for Education, says:

“The health and well-being of local communities is important to us and we know that people are keen to get back into their fitness and sport activities so this is very welcome news. We’ll be working closely with Aneurin Leisure Trust to support them with their plans for a phased safe re-opening of sports centres across Blaenau Gwent.”

Phill Sykes, Operations Director for Aneurin Leisure Trust says:

"We're excited that the Welsh Government has made this announcement and we can't wait to see our members back at the centres soon. Sport and leisure activities are fundamental to the well-being of the community and our priority is to ensure that we can provide these services to help improve community life whilst ensuring that they are as safe as possible for members."

In anticipation of customer queries sports centres will be staffed by team members for phone enquiries during the following times:

• Ebbw Vale Sport Centre: Monday - Friday, 9am to 3.30pm
• Abertillery Sport Centre: Monday - Friday, 9am to 3.30pm
