DCLT statement - covid-19

Following the latest update regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust will be closing all leisure venues from 8:00pm on Wednesday 18 March.

Michael Hart, chief executive of Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust said: “We are committed to ensuring that we reduce the risk of Covid-19 for all our staff and customers.

“As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and government advice regarding social distancing all of our leisure venues will be closing at 8pm today and will remain closed until is it deemed safe to reopen.

“We apologise for the inevitable inconvenience that this will cause our customers, but we ask that people understand that this is an unprecedented situation and that we are all working to make the best decisions for our staff and customers.

“All fitness, swimming and skating lessons and golf direct debits will be frozen during this period and no further monthly payments will be taken whilst our venues are closed.

“Fitness and wellbeing is an important part of people’s lives and staying fit and active is a good way to build resilience and as such, we are working to develop online fitness alternatives to encourage our local community to keep active in their own home during this closure period.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep our members and customers up to date with any changes and relevant information regarding reopening via our website and social media pages.”
