Fife Sports and Leisure Trust users will be able to access their local facility again from the end of April.

Unlike the first lockdown, which saw the charitable trust operate a phased re-opening programme, this time round it intends to open doors on facilities on the same date.

However, work is progressing to address issues related to Covid-19 health and safety measures at the Beacon Leisure Centre in Burntisland and customers there will be advised of its opening date.

Emma Walker, chief executive for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “Our staff are eager to get back into centres and get ready to welcome customers.

"Teams are working hard behind the scenes to prepare buildings and are engaging with clubs and users who have regular bookings.

"In addition, communications have started with members of leisure active, participants of the health programme and learn to swim participants.

“Prior to the lockdown in December, we had enjoyed several months of service delivery and our health and safety measures were very robust – indeed we received consistently high satisfaction scores from customers who felt staff were well informed and that social distancing and hygiene measures were of a very high standard. We are confident that we are in a very good position to welcome customers back so that they can get active safely again.”
