On Saturday 7th August will see a return to almost everything you know and love.

We have started our phased lifting of restrictions with your safety in mind, starting with the removal of booking slots from our gym and swim sessions. (excluding early morning swimming at Aberavon & Neath)

This really is great news, but please remember that we’re all in a different place in terms of getting back into the swing of things. Your safety remains a priority to us. While we will continue with our increased cleaning regimes, please support us by regularly using the hand sanitiser provided and wearing a face covering when moving around our centres, especially at busy times.
