Isle of Anglesey County Council


Reopening our leisure centres


We're looking forward to welcoming you back safely, so we can continue to support your health and fitness journey.

All members who come to the Mon Actif Leisure Centres from Monday 14th of September must wear a face covering.

The face covering must be worn when entering the leisure centre and whilst travelling to your activity; you will be able to take the face covering off when participating in the activity e.g. swimming, fitness room and fitness classes.

You will be required to wear the face covering at the end of the session until you leave the centre.

You, as members, have been very supportive and respectful of our phased return plans so please continue to work with us as we aim to protect you and staff.

Please share this message as wide as possible as we work together to stay safe.

We've been working hard behind the scenes to create a safe environment for you to visit and we've made some changes to how we do things.

Everyone will have a part to play in keeping our centres safe, and we'll be asking you follow a few rules too. Keeping you safe and healthy is our number one priority. That's why we're introducing new cleaning procedures and social distancing measures.

Cleaning, cleanliness and disinfecting

We'll be sanitising gym equipment throughout the day, cleaning the swimming pool changing rooms after each session and cleaning the entire centre every night. All staff have had cleaning training. Members will be encouraged to sanitise their hands at reception, additional hand sanitiser units have been positioned at key areas and cleaning stations will be located around the centre.

Social distancing

You'll see new social distancing signs around the centre, including one-way systems where possible. We're also limiting the number of members in each area, such as the fitness rooms, fitness classes, swimming pool and changing rooms.

Please note: dry-side changing rooms will be unavailable for the time being. Members using the swimming pool will be able to use the swimming changing rooms.

Fitness classes

We're running smaller classes to keep everyone safe. We're only running certain classes to ensure social distancing – the timetable will be released on our social media pages.

Protecting you and our teams

We've installed plastic shields at our reception desks and we'll be providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to our staff if necessary.

Before coming into the centre

Stay home if you're unwell - please don't come to the centre if you feel sick or have COVID-19 symptoms.

Bring your own - if you're doing a fitness class, bring your own mat if you have one. Unfortunately, the water fountains and vending machines will be out of use. Therefore, please ensure you bring your own water with you.

Arrive ready to work out - please come in your workout / fitness clothes.

Travel light - we won't have as many lockers available as usual, so please think about how much you're bringing with you.

Pre-book your activity - all activities will need to be booked in advanced. You can do this by using our online booking system HERE (from 09:30 07/08/2020).

While you're at the centre

Use hand sanitising stations - you'll find these before you reach reception and throughout the centre.

Check-in at reception if you're doing a class - try to arrive no more than 5 minutes early and follow the social distancing rules while you're waiting for the class.

Please have your membership card ready to scan when entering the centre. When your session is over, please leave the centre as quickly as possible via the designated exits.

Follow the social distancing signs - keep to the one-way system and try to stay at least 2 metres from others as much as possible.

Clean your equipment and mats - you can do this before and after use with the products provided around the gym.

Failure to comply with the new guidance e.g. keeping a social distance could lead to suspension of your membership. 

We all have a part to play to stay safe whilst in our centres.

If you have any questions you can email monactif@anglesey.gov.uk

Finally, we would like to thank you for your patience over the last 4 months and we look forward to welcoming you back to our facilities soon.
