Cllr Tom Anderson, Chair of Tourism, Communities, Culture & Leisure Committee at Wirral Council, said: “For many, exercise is a way to maintain physical and mental health.

“Being able to reopen gyms and other leisure facilities means that people can get back into enjoying the sports and activities they’ve missed.”

All leisure facilities that reopen on 3 December will continue to operate by booking only to make sure the number of people using the facilities remains at safe levels – and all customers must book and pay for their session before they arrive at the centre.

Strict safety measures will also be in place to keep leisure users and gym-goers as safe as possible.
