Over 6,800 attendances have been recorded at the flagship centres, and the trust said that 97 per cent were satisfied with the social distancing and health and safety measures in place. Staff were given 100 per cent feedback for their knowledge of the safety measures.

Emma Walker, chief executive, said: “We’ve had a fantastic reaction from customers following the re-opening of four of our facilities – feedback has shown that users are confident in the health and safety measures that are in place and that measures are easy to follow.

“ Staff are looking forward to getting back into centres and welcoming back our customers.”
