Family and inclusive swimming sessions to be provided for Fifers

Fife Sports and Leisure Trust says family and inclusive swimming sessions will be delivered in line with current coronavirus rules at some of its facilities.

Since the trust's swimming pools were re-opened, protocols have meant only lane swimming was allowed.

But risk assessments have been carried out and pool time will be made available to families, disabled and older adults during non-lane swimming sessions.

The sessions will take place from December 5 at Michael Woods Sports and Leisure Centre in Glenrothes, Carnegie Leisure Centre in Dunfermline and Levenmouth Swimming Pool.

They will also be held at Kirkcaldy and Cupar Leisure Centres.

Chief executive of Fife Sports and Leisure Trust Emma Walker said: "We have had a great response from local communities since we re-opened centres and although we’ve had to adapt to the latest Level 3 restrictions which prohibits group indoor exercise and sports for adults, we have still been able to offer our gyms and pools for customers.

"We have been working hard to make accessible our pools to those who are not able, or prefer not to, swim in the lane sessions.

"And, following fantastic work by our teams, we are very pleased to be extending our swim programme to allow families, older adults and disabled customers more choice.

"We continue to receive very high satisfaction customer ratings for our health and safety and social distancing measures which are in place and we feel confident that those who have not yet been able to enjoy time in the pool, will welcome these sessions."
