Local leisure facilities update

July 28, 2020 4:32 PM

Fusion Lifestyle logoFusion Lifestyle and Bedford Borough Council have been following national guidance regarding the safe reopening of leisure facilities within the Borough during COVID-19.

Since mid-May the Council and Fusion have reopened Mowsbury Golf Club, providing a leisure offer for customers in line with public health guidance and guidance around safe outdoor sporting activities.

However, with the infection rate having been higher locally than in other places, the indoor leisure facilities did not reopen on 25 July, when the government enabled gyms to begin operating. Indoor facilities are more susceptible to the virus being spread.

The Council and Fusion know leisure facilities are very important for health and wellbeing and they are working to open again as soon as they are safe and viable. They have said that the safety of residents, staff and visitors to their leisure facilities is their priority and they are working on plans to reopen when it is safe to do so and in line with national guidance regarding the leisure sector.

The Bedford Sport Live website is continuing to deliver free, online sports classes including gentle exercise, yoga, Tai Chi, and a range of chair-based exercises at https://bedfordsportlive.crd.co/. All of the sessions are gentle, informal and you can take part in as much or as little as you wish.

This decision will be kept under review. Gym members are encouraged to keep an eye out for future updates from Fusion Lifestyle.
