Bo’ness Recreation Centre
Falkirk Community Trust is delighted to announce that Bo’ness Recreation Centre will reopen on Monday 9 November. At this stage of reopening, the Centre will be offering limited sports activities with the swimming pool open for public swimming only. The indoor sports activity areas will be used for Sports Development football and tennis classes initially, with general community and club use to follow soon.
All of our services have been adapted to incorporate the necessary social distancing measures and hygiene requirements. They will, therefore, look different as we continue to live and operate alongside COVID-19.
We had prepared an exciting fitness class programme, although in line with current Government Guidance, indoor adult fitness classes will not be available, nor contact sport activities for over 18s. In addition to this, lockers and the sauna & steam room will not be accessible and the café and gym will remain closed at this time due to capacity restrictions in place.
There may be some customers who do not feel ready to return to health and fitness facilities. If this is the case, you will have the option to freeze your membership for up to a maximum of 12 months and could instead take advantage of our new outdoor fitness classes running at Grangemouth Stadium.
All of our venues will comply with the Scottish Government’s Test and Protect scheme. As a result, all visits must be booked in advance. Bookings will be taken over the phone for next week from Wednesday 4 November from 10am. Phone lines will be open initially from Wednesday 4 – Friday 6 November between 10am – 2pm. Please get in touch by calling the venue directly on 01506 778 510.
All other activities which are available when we reopen should be booked and paid by phone with the venue. Swimmers are asked to arrive ‘beach ready’ with swimwear on under clothes, having showered at home. All customers will be required to wear face coverings in public areas i.e. upon entering the building and while moving between corridors and toilets. Customers will be able to remove their face covering when inside their designated changing cubicle.
As previously advised, we have extended our complimentary Health & Fitness access to all of our members for a further month and any Direct Debit payment will now not recommence until Tuesday 1 December.
We would like to take this opportunity of to thank all of our customers. Your continued loyalty and support is greatly appreciated.
